Once again this week I’m back to using the trusty Blackwing Palomino pencil, only this time it started out as a phone doodle.

While I was on the phone, stuck in “hold purgatory,” I grabbed my clipboard and just started doodling what became a girl’s face. I did a little post-call finishing, but it’s just a doodled portrait of an imaginary young lady.

This is pencil on regular copy paper. I was using the plastic clipboard to hold it, and with my MG-afflicted fingers, this once again changed the amount of pressure I could apply. So it’s not really my normal style. This is smaller than last week’s drawing, but I had a bit more control this week, and didn’t have to do much with it post-scanning.  As with much of my physical art of late, this is just me trying to get my fingers working again.
