This sketch wraps up Leuchtturm 1917 Sketchbook week. It's not an actor from "The Closer" as the caption explains. I just loved the outline he created.

Earlier in the week I mentioned that the surface drag on this paper made me want to stop and hatch and here it made me want to stipple in all that 5 o'clock shadow. I just love that crisp line on this paper. I'm sure my mother is right—I'm just shallow. Giddy but shallow.
This short post is brought to you by my need to save my hands and shoulders for sketching at the Minnesota State Fair. I'll be back to writing volumes before you know it—in fact if all goes well I'll have a couple journal flip-throughs coming up for you.
