Jack (WIP)



It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this blog. Reason one is slow internet connection. Reason two is college. But it’s summer break now and while it is hot, almost unbearably so, I now have more than enough time to catch up on my reading and my drawing.

One of the things I enjoy most about summer break is that I can watch so many movies and tv shows. During Holy Week, my sister, who was either being ironic or simply being ignorant, made us watch “Pillars of the Earth”, a show whose plot is comparable to Rizal’s “Noli me Tangere”. To say that we got addicted is an understatement. We watched all eight episodes in one sitting and by the time it was over, I had the eyes of a meth addict and the world’s worst headache.

I love the main character, Jack, and I absolutely love Eddie Redmayne, the actor who plays him. He’s not what you’d call handsome, at least not in the conventional way, but he has one of the most interesting faces I’ve ever seen on a human being. Bone structure maybe.

Michael Fassbender


Practiced shading using Michael Fassbender’s face. Done under one our using…hmmm, not really sure what kind of paper this is. It’s also very dirty as I’ve filled up all of my sketchpads. This paper is actually a page of my Art History journal so if I forget and pass this on Friday, my prof will come face to face with Michael F. Oh well, I used 6B, 2B, and HB pencils and a kneaded eraser. His name (and something else) has become a household joke. I do love him. He’s got such a manly face and beautiful eyes. But if you have watched his movie Shame…well, you’ll know why we make such lewd jokes about him.
