Cheating again for #inktober, a semi-blind contour drawing from an older sketchbook.
An attack of (mostly) quick blind contour faces from season 4 of The Walking Dead
Boxing day, relaxing on the couch with the family.
Blind contour of some beaten up wicker chairs in a small, tucked away lounge at my workplace.

My latest submission for Niff and Sutter’s Blind Contour Fridays. Click the link and join in! This month’s theme is “Sky” which is supposed to mean whatever you want it to. Well, sky here will mean ‘pie in the sky’ as is my dreams to keep up with Sparky’s “Self-Portrait Marathon“. So here is myContinue reading “Blind Contour First Friday – JULY”
My submission for Niff and Sutter’s Blind Contour Fridays. If you follow the link and check out everyone’s work, you’ll see it’s a great deal of fun. This month’s theme is “My Favorite!” which in this case is a messed up bottle of HP Sauce – my favourite condiment. I imagine this is how theContinue reading “Blind Contour First Friday – JUNE”
Niff and Sutter’s third ‘Blind Contour First Friday’. The theme is ‘breakfast time’. Here you find a bag of milk, an empty bowl and an egg carton. Really.
Niff and Sutter’s second ‘Blind Contour First Friday’. It was supposed to be ‘Out the Window’ this month but instead you have the woman reading the paper in front of me. Must go to work now, I’m late!! Ah!
Niff and Sutter’s first ‘Blind Contour First Friday’. It was moved from a weekly to a monthly format because it seemed too hard to keep up for many people. This month’s installment has a theme: HOT. Above, I give you our stove with one pot, one griddle, and one frypan on top. Not exactly aContinue reading “Blind Contour First Friday 1 — Thank God I’m a country boy”
First a blind contour of the gentleman reading. Then a more detailed study. Fortunately our subject today was engrossed in his book.
Another older blind contour drawing, this one from August of 2004. At one point in drawing people on the subway I decided to get away from trying to be exact and move more towards… something else… and blind contour was a part of that. I was so happy to discover Niff and Sutter’s Blind ContourContinue reading “Blind Contour Friday 26 – eat a banana”
Blind contour of a fidgety man waiting on a street corner, Yonge and Eglinton.
A blind contour sketch from earlier this year – March 29th actually.
My daughter’s boots, lying off the mat and on our wood floor. Hmm — I must talk to her about this. After the blind contour of course. Visit the wonderful Inkfinger to see them all. Not many updates from me this week – sorry… I’m on vacation and barely going outside, let alone riding theContinue reading “Blind Contour Friday 23 – Leah’s boots”
Well, this poor gentleman sitting in front of me (above), a robust freshman on his way to what I think is a kind of college for gym teachers, was my subject for Blind Contour Friday. Him and the tassle in his hat. Not a good morning, his jacket collar turned into the mouth of anContinue reading “Blind Contour Friday 22 – the travelling arm”
This is also my Blind Contour Friday contribution — the minivan above was a blind contour I drew waiting for the bus to work, at Finch Station. The women below it I drew later on the bus, but not as a blind contour. Looking at the page later it seemed to me they were collectivelyContinue reading “Dreaming”
A three- or four- second mad gesture drawing.
