Daily Sketch 27

More old men. Actually, it is three views of the same imaginary guy. This picture is just a little shy of being a nude figurative drawing. I feel hesitant to publish something like that on my blog because I don't want to offend anyone.
Why is it that the human figure is so offensive or obscene in our society? I see the human body, especially in art, as poetry. Whether "pretty" or "ugly", when I draw the human figure it is like creating music. I wonder how I could express that concept artistically.

Amen. It is a shame that society has made being 'nude' such a bad thing. Truly loved browsing through your blog. Great Work! wish I could do people like you do!

I've had the same thoughts myself! And my six year old niece stops by my blog sometimes. Thinking I should start a second blog, adult content only. These are great. Very very good for being from imagination!

Raena,
It might be a good idea to have an adult content site. My only problem is that I wouldn't want it to seem that I have an "adult" sight. Even "mature" doesn't quite sound right :)
