    Bob,

    For such a prolific artist, you sure do post a lot of older work. Regardless, it's good to find you posting your art, again.

    I came across a quote, yesterday, that made me think of your approach to art It was bu Joe Kubert.

    Kubert, on the importance of life drawing vs. copying from the masters:

    Fine artists have learned through the ages by painting from sculptures and copying classic works but, when it comes to really knowing the figure, if you try to learn from copying other people’s drawings you end up with a double exaggeration. This especially holds true when the person who has really affected you and inspired you to draw like them is drawing an exaggerated figure to begin with. When you try to learn from an artist (comics or other) who is adding exaggeration, you end up exaggerating even more, which removes the figure from reality. One could be copying Mark Silvestri, who’s copying John Buscema, who’s copying Hal Foster, who did Life [sic] drawing! I find that, going back to Life drawing is like going back to the well — the source of inspiration — and it is a necessity which I find it [sic] absolutely essential.


    [How to Draw from Life (Vanguard, 2009), p. 12]

    I am curious, Bob - are you game for a challenge? Or, perhaps I should say, a series of challenges? I always want to see your take on a number of different characters that you never seem to draw.

    Sure why not? Just to let you know I don't copy any artist I draw from my imagination and always have.Some characters are just not interesting to draw but I can draw about any character if I want to Charley.
