1001 Black Men–#505




















I created this drawing based on a guy who goes to my gym. I’ve been a member for 2 months now. Is that long enough to be able to call it my gym? In any event, he stood out for me because while a significant number of the more muscular guys at the gym dress in sleeveless basketball-style jerseys he appeared to be wearing your basic plain, white, undershirt. For this drawing, I’ve taken him out of the gym, seated him on a wall of sorts, and framed him using an oval-shaped composition in muted shades of peach. I like drawing feet, and so I’ve drawn him shoeless to give this a dancer-like and more timeless quality.
