Louise

This is Louise Brooks. She was an actress in the 1920s and 30s. A true “flapper girl.“ She helped popularize the bob hairstyle. Apparently, she was something of a hedonist. But I didn’t draw her because of all that. I just thought she was pretty.

King Etzel

This is a depiction of King Etzel from a beautiful sculpture (Nibelungen-Brunnen, “Nibelungen Fountain”) in Tulln, Austria by Michail Nogin of his meeting with Kriemhild. Etzel is my German family name and I claim him as my ancestor. That’s how I got the Sir Colby nickname. According to the Nibelungenlied (the Song of the Nibelungs), it was in Tulln that Etzel saw Kriemhild and proposed to her. The fountain was dedicated to this event in 2005.

Tina Cheerleader

I don’t remember how the conversation started but it ended up being about Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, Tina Hernandez, from the late 1970s, early 1980s. I mentioned that I had done a drawing of her but a search on my website revealed I had never posted it except in one of the banners. A photographer friend of mine had taken a photo of her on the field and gave it to me to draw. Tina moved on to Hollywood, became Tina Gayle, and starred in the TV series, “CHiPs.” Many years later here’s the drawing:
