Church drawings

For some reason, sometimes I have an easier time paying attention in church if I'm drawing. Maybe it keeps me from being fidgety, and I think I'm usually studying people's faces anyway and this gives me a way to channel that split focus so I can listen better.


These are done with ballpoint pen, and usually pretty hasty before the person moves, so that's why I never get down to their bodies.

  2. These are great! There is a lot of variety in the approaches. I especially like the gesture of the talking guy.

  3. I have always considered church a valid place to sketch. Really, the bishopric is just asking for it most of the time.

    These are great.

  11. these sketches are great, I really liked them. I find myself drawing people almost all of the time, but never quite accomplish such clean strokes and lines like these. Congratulations!
