Bandaged

Last night I had an urge to sketch before going to bed. I sat up on the couch as not to keep the family up, and watched old reruns of M*A*S*H. I love that show. I started with just a face. That's often what I find myself reverting to when I don't have anything in mind but am wanting to run the pen across paper. As I began, the face seemed bland and boring, so I added the moustache. I added some wrinkles to add a little character, and still it was missing interest, so I added a few bandages and bruises. The finale was the cotton up the nose. I actually really enjoyed doing this one. My wife got mad after painting because of the blood here and there...I blamed it on the old M*A*S*H episodes.
