Illustration Friday: "Reinvent"

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Let's Start With This Old Thing, 2005 • graphite, Pentel Brush Pen, workable fixative, Photoshop®

I gotta give props to Rob Day for the awesome topic. I had an idea right away!
This is one of those times that I really should be doing other stuff, but I couldn't pass this one up, f'real. If you're wondering what's up with the use of fixative, that's how I got the eraser crumbs to stick around.
There's no big high-falutin' meaning behind this thing, really. Sure, the dude with no face is me, but that's just because I didn't want to draw the ultimate in reinvention: Madonna.
I'd continue to say more about this, but there really isn't anymore to say. There is work to be done, however...peace!

Those detailed eraser marks are just the best!! I love the eraser for being very harsh and blunt. Shows the effort reinventions.
