Powerful sketch, I worked with the homeless for 9 years and they have told me numerous stries about sleeping rough-You have depicted something REAL here!
Yes, powerful, a great use of wonderful drawing skills.
this is such a courageous and compelling drawing Laura, it shows a very real yet often forgotten side of city life
Great story telling, what a scene.
Thanks a lot all of you. This one was a very much hard one. While drawing such a scene, many thoughts come up. Many questions too : what am I drawing ? What do I want to tell about it and how should I tell it... You finally get home, your home, and go to bed, your bed... but impossible to be done with it. It doesn't leave you alone...A few days have passed since I drew it, but my mind is still busy with it.
Hey, just want to add something to the story. Yesterday night, I came back there and gave these men them a copy of the drawing, what I often do when I draw people. They said they will coat it with plastic to keep it protected...
This is so strong.
that's terrific that you gave them a copy of the drawing and what they said, inspiring!
That's the very word that came to my mind - "powerfu". The mood is set just right with the use of muted colors.
Great sketch. Di you do it on the spot or from a photo?. It looks like it´s freezing
Thanks again you all...4ojos, actually I never draw from photos. What I am interested in is getting in places and meeting people with drawing... The final result is less important than what happens while drawing.
yes, so powerful and so true
You really see and capture life. You say it all. I'm moved. many thanks..
