“When I started thinking about the theme “Moustache” I jotted down a lot of potential ideas I could go with. I did a couple thumbnails and then built off the one I believed could best tell a story.

I like finding the humour in scenarios and enjoy the challenge of putting a story into a single image. I then wanted to further challenge myself with adopting a style I hadn't tried before so, I studied the work of Al Hirschfeld for the month of November. I took note of style choices he made when creating his characters and lines. I wrote these down and then practiced drawing referenced real people into Hirschfeld's style. His smoothness and flow in line, I think, lent itself perfectly to the cool, fashionable characters I, myself, was trying to create.

Now the best part is, moving forward I have another style I can fall back on if I'm not having the best of drawing days!”

Congrats to all our November Art Jam artists!
