Colin (Remember, remember the fifth of November)

Mixed Media. 2010

Just finished this drawing of my roommate, bandmate and all-around mate, Colin Foster striking a very characteristic rock-star pose. I realized as I was making it, that viewers might mistake the image for someone in a Guy Fawkes mask rocking out. In fact, Colin just looks a lot like Guy Fawkes, if those masks are to be taken as an accurate likeness. Thus this work helped me understand something new about my subject and it gives me something to call him besides "Captain Morgan".

For an extra-fun bonus, here's a photo I found tucked into my sketchbook recently of Colin and I jamming:

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!
