Mustachioed

pencil, gouache, ink, 5.5

pencil, gouache, ink, 5.5″ x 8″

A friend of mine grew this awesome mustache a while back.

He shaved it off recently and I did this drawing from a photo he gave me. The line drawing came first and I’m not sure why I chose to do it in sanguine ink. I usually draw it out in pencil or black ink, but the sanguine looks interesting to me. The darks were put in with a Pentel brush pen and the little bits of white are done with a brush and dip pen.

  1. Very expressive. I love the choice of paper with words that are still visible.
