Man With Turban

This is another study from Eloise. It reminds me of a book I'm reading called Carnet de Voyage by Craig Thompson, author of Blankets. It's basically his sketch journal. He documented his travels in northern Africa. His drawings are so good! He draws all in brush pen. It looks like he draws from photos, but he doesn't. I'm amazed that the perspective is so good. He must be drawing in pencil first because I don't see any mistakes. I'm jealous of his drawing skills, but not jealous of his trip. Most of it doesn't sound very pleasant. Upset stomach, places that smell like poop, people ripping him off... Pas bon, ça, Pooping in the desert with one piece of tissue? That's a deal breaker.
