Drawing - Pencil Drawing
My daughter does these "hard to believe it's not a photograph" pencil drawings of photographs of famous people. In addition to this horizontal of Marilyn Monroe, I've also uploaded a vertical cropping of Marilyn, and ones of Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn and Scarlet Johansson. They take her many, many hours, and patience I could never muster. I'm always amazed to see them unfold. Unfortunately, when she posts them on facebook, other people don't believe they are hand done because they look so much like photographs. However, if you click on the 100% resolution, I think it should be obvious that they are pencil drawings. The image is a flatbed scan of the original, which are very delicate. For a while, she was drawing some of the more famous rock band members and going to their concerts and getting them signed. I hope to get her to let me scan and post those as well. She was particularly a fan of Lincoln Park and Green Day for a while.
