January 30, 2011. For some reason I decided I needed a little sketch of the Russian artist Ivan Kramskoi in my sketchbook. I'm not sure why, but I guess I like his intense expression, and I can picture his mom telling him to comb his hair. My sketch makes him out to have stronger features than the real guy, but it was good practice. I think I need to add a speech bubble to the sketch now, and have him say something.
