Collector's Editions

A couple of years ago when the book of my figure drawings was first released, I made a number of original drawings inside the cover to create collector's editions. I sold out almost immediately but kept creating new drawings because I love experimenting and trying new things. Additionally, this abbreviated fashion was a perfect forum to play.  Here are a couple of those drawings.

  3. Thanks so much to both of you. I have so much fun working on them and it's an absolute pleasure to hear back from people when they get them... especially if they really like them. My little secret is that I always try to over deliver. Thanks again for taking the time to write.

  5. Thanks. Most of the drawings I've done for the collector's editions have never been seen. I've been thinking of doing something with them but I'm on the fence between a couple of options at the moment. Regardless... I appreciate you taking the time to voice your opinion.

  8. I recognize those stripey arms! The fifth drawing down, and it looks like several others here- that's the same model that Brad Kunkle painted as...the peacock queen or something? Right? Great stuff; I think the first one is my favorite. I'm willing to bet that you are a Charles Dana Gibson fan like me.

    1. Yes that's the same girl. You're right. She's a wonderful model and a nice girl. I did a couple of drawings of her. Can you guess who has those collector's editions?
      Gibson is wonderful and of course I have books on him but somehow my favorite was and for the most part always has been Cole.
