This portrait of singer Sarah Jahn was the first ever drawn in my “infamous” sketchbook (which acted as a sort of prehistoric portfolio). I had started it many months before, without finishing it until June 2, 1998. For some reason I had gotten lazy and abandoned it for a long time. I think it was done with several different kinds of pencils.
Man, it’s 2010 now and I still love this picture. Granted, I’m pleased with VERY few of the drawings that I’ve done, but I really like this one still… plus given how old it is, it holds a special place in my heart I suppose. I look at it now and feel like I probably could have gone more detailed in some areas, but I still dig it. And where the heck has Sarah Jahn gone?! She did a fantastic pop acoustic record in 1997 and then disappeared from the planet Earth. Sad story.
