Okay, watch out. I am actually and genuinely pleased with something that I drew. Now, that might sound odd, because of the number of times that I post about drawings. The reality is, I tend to be only okay with the drawings that I do. Mostly because I don't put that much work into them. I'm even less pleased when I draw from reference. However... A rarity!

One hand is too small, but I actually don't mind. The style in which I drew it pleases me, and makes me think of Ralph Steadman. Maybe listening to old interviews and recordings of Hunter S. Thompson influenced me?
