Behind every finished piece of art is a trail of sketches, scribbles, mountains of crumpled tracing paper and unused concepts. Sometimes I look back and wish I could incorporate some of the looser compositions into finished pieces.
I'm absolutely in awe of artists who go right from a blank page to finished product - including people that do super realistic, tight work, I can't even fathom how this is possible.
This drawing of Philly mayor Michael Nutter I thought turned out awesome and was of bummed that the job it was for was never printed.
Anyway seriously if anyone cares about these things I will send you hundreds of sketches for a few bucks, otherwise most of them go right in the trash.
