Black Jacket Symphony pen and ink #1

June 8th, 2011 Pen and Ink 9x12
Black Jacket Symphony
Allen Barlow
I found this photo on a friends Facebook page and did this ink drawing based on that photo. It started as a more "loose" pen and ink drawing, but the more ink I applied, the more it really looked like my friend, Allen Barlow. So, the more ink I added, the more naturally the details were added.....the bass player and a few other members became more visible.
Total time: about 8 hours spread over 3 nights

I will try and get permission to show the original photo I used to create this.........

Started back pen and ink portraits

I use to do hundreds of pen and ink portraits during the 1990's and on into about 2003. Over that time, I bet I drew and sold over 500, no lie! My files are crammed with photocopies of most of these drawings and 90% of them I don't even know or remember who they are. I got burned out with pen eventually and just stopped doing and accepting any type of ink work since then....until recently. A co-worker/friend wanted a portrait of his son in ink for a Mother's Day gift. Here is the photo and the result. It's been 7-8 years.....
