Next in the Sketchbook Project sketchbook is Rob Adams – aka RobAdamsArtist on Twitter. Rob is a Detroit-based artist, with some stunning work. He’s also the founder of the Hard Work and Dedication movement, or HWAD, thus the “HWAD” on the bandanna covering his mouth below. Read more about Rob from his website HERE.
He does a lot with spray paint, and I really wanted to recreate some of that feel with the piece I was going to do on him, but spray paint just isn’t practical with a 7 x 5 piece of sketchbook paper. So while I was sketching out the drawing, it just sort of grew into a pencil drawing, which I haven’t done for this sketchbook project yet. It worked out, and I actually like the contrast it brings to his work. Sort of balances, I think.
And here’s Rob!
