I found a photo of Ryan Gosling and George Clooney combined. Ryan is holding a folded TIME magazine over 1/2 of his face with Clooney on the other side. I have not seen the movie yet, but want to.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year! I've been SO busy with moving, work etc that this is the first drawing I've down in almost 2 months. Now that we are settled, and winter is setting in, I hope to be drawing a lot more!

Greg Laswell is admittedly one of our son's (Andrew Belle) biggest influences when it comes to singer-songwriters! We saw Andrew open for Greg at SPACE in Evanston IL in 2010 and he's awesome! I HIGHLY recommend you grab his new CD "Landline" when it drops April 24th! In the mean time, check out his single "Come Back Down" on Youtube! [link]

NOTE: UN-enlarged view is about 1 inch wider and taller than Drawing

This looked a lot easier than it was. I thought all I had to do was make black everything that was NOT Arnold, but there were many challenges to this one!

FAV song by Stevie: "I Just Called To Say I Love You" [link]

NOTE ABOUT THE DRAWING: As much as I enjoyed drawing all the details in his glasses, I hated drawing his hand. I HATE drawing hands! Also the ref photo was not high resolution (see link) and while I know teeth are NOT suppose to be pure white, the photo made them appear that way. Anyway, I have an 8 out of 10 on the satisfaction scale with this one. CLICK DOWNLOAD for a SUPER CLOSE UP VIEW? :D:D

This is Jim Caviezel. He played Jesus Christ in the movie "The Passion" and now he has a new show with Michael Emerson (Ben from LOST) called "Person of Interest". It's a GREAT show!!

NOTHING inspires me more to draw than an AWESOME PHOTO!!

I have created a Google Picasa photo album with ALL of my PAST reference photos I used in past drawings, and thought I would share them with everyone. Feel free to share and download them, draw them etc. It will be growing each time I finish a drawing.

*** I just uploaded a HIGHER RESOLUTION scan so you can view details better *** The UN-enlarged view is the actual size of the drawing

I've been told SO many times that I should draw more women, so here's to you! :D:D

I'm not some huge Jessica Alba fan, but I ran across this photo of her while searching for someone else, and like I've said, it's the PHOTO that gets me excited to draw, not so much the person. When you find BOTH, it's pure heaven!
