Wow, this is an old one:
A study in design for art class way back in college. Since it was done with Marks-a-Lot the ink has faded over the decades. It was titled “Abstract #2.” I wonder whatever happened to #1.

Looking at a black and white photo I drew this on the computer, adding color and texture. I didn’t have any idea what to call it so I just picked up on her hair clip. Not exactly classical art but it was fun.

This drawing was done for my 2014 Christmas card. I wanted to recognize Joseph. I wanted to show a young man, proud to be a father and delighted in his son.
Joseph, son of David, what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. He will save his people from their sins.
I wanted to complement the earlier drawing I had done of Mary and baby Jesus:(http://sircolby.com/drawings/mary-and-baby-jesus/)

Friends of mine at church met while they were students in elementary school in Somerville, Texas. Their old school building had been around for 60 or so years before being torn down. They came up with an old photo and asked me to draw it for them. I don’t usually do “architectural” things but did my best.
