Harpo Marx

This drawing of comedian Harpo Marx is actually probably my all-time favorite portrait I’ve done. I finished it 4/24/2005 (according to my scribbling on the back of it) and it has actually been hanging in my living room since then. It was drawn freehand from a photo of Harpo that I found online years ago. I’m a big fan of the Marx Bros. and their films so this was a fun one to do. And I just love that facial expression!

I just finally took it down (January 2010) to scan it for this site and my portfolio, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

As I’ve put these blog pages together and saw a notation on another drawing that this was started in 2004 but remained unfinished, I actually completely forgot about that. I have no idea why I would have started this one and never finished it (unless I got too busy. I have NO recollection of that)…
