From My Sketchbook – The Fairer Sex

As I’ve been exploring ways to go even further in the direction of whimsy with my illustrations, I’ve discovered that “cartooning” men is a lot easier than creating cartoons of women.  Maybe men are just inherently more cartoonish?  Whatever the case, I’ve been paying a lot of attention to the women around me with an eye to simplifying their features while still keeping their look clearly feminine.

To that end, here’s a series of head sketches I did while I dined this week at Boulangerie Eric Kayser

three female head sketches

And while waiting for the subway…
