standpoint

I like to draw from time to time. I don’t do it enough but when I do actually sit down to draw, I’m always pleased with the results.

Here are some samples of what I’ve drawn. I apologize for the resolution since I had to take pictures of them because I don’t have a scanner. But I think you’ll get the idea.

This is a simple viewpoint from the living room of the house that Harv and I lived in on Maiden St.

Five weird guys just hanging out.

A drunken rendering of the sunrise in Avalon.

The bottom of a tree outside the library at Saint Joseph's University.

Some weird creature I drew with lines.

I have a lot more but I think I need to wait to get a scanner. These were just the best ones that came out with crude photography.
