Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

The grocery store's the super mart, uh huh
Gasoline prices break your heart, uh huh
And men still keep on marching off to war
200 points down on the floor
and
The beat goes on, the beat goes on
La de da de de, la de da de da

    That is a beautiful pportrait of Hillary Clinton. The psycology behind her expression is wonderfully subtle. Do the articles you are drawing over have any relation to the actual drawings?

    Thanks for the kind words. Yes, these are done quickly over my morning coffee on the kitchen counter as I'm reading the paper. It's an exercise really, I do it in pen over the news so I wouldn't be tempted to perfect it with erasing, but in truth I kinda dig the text of the subject peaking out from behind said subject. There are a few exceptions where the format of the page has a narrow column at the edge of the page and not much space to draw. In that case, I try to find some relating text to draw over.
