Title: We now have the most attractive First Lady Jill Biden since Marilyn Monroe.
Program Use: Adobe Suite


I started with a computer graphic design scrapbook. This I don’t print out I just post it on my blog for visitors to see where I can and get my ideas from. I get tired of drawing with a pencil and I feel I need a bit of color in my life. Using pop art is a thing that never really interested me but I think the usage of color is fantastic. You will find the images in my notes which I create for my paintings.

The images which I got are from free vector images on the web.

Personal Notes

I am going to stick with this technique which I am busy with, it feels it is working. I like the linework and would use thinner lines and lighter lines. I am currently using a B4 to draw the lines. As soon as I draw my own sketches and not working from photostats I will be able to use a lot of different pencils.

Personal Notes

What I did was I made a photostat of an existing sketch and I colored it in. I used lines to do so, this gives me an exercise to practice the lines in the sketch. I found it very helpful to practice the style that I am working on.
