HELLO Newspaper Vol.1

A Series of Work On Paper Portraits.

Features a selection of 23 Full Page portraits from an ongoing series of work.

I started drawing and mailing portraits to friends in the Spring of 2020 as Covid started shutting things down.

It was my way of saying HELLO to friends in a lo-fi and considered way, with hopes of brightening their day.

I rarely draw people, and I hadn’t drawn in this style or method before, so it has been nice for me to figure things out as I go.

The original portraits are created using Caran D’Ache Wax Pastel and Listo Marking Pen on Manila Scrapbook paper – with cut-out layers taped on top of wherever I messed up the drawing details.
