A blog about about painting, design and other aspects of aesthetics along with a dash of non-art topics. The point-of-view is that modernism in art is an idea that has, after a century or more, been thoroughly tested and found wanting. Not to say that it should be abolished -- just put in its proper, diminished place.

Glen Orbik's Drawings of Heads
Glen Orbik (1963-2015) is perhaps best known for his "noir" style book cover art. Besides having a good sense of staging, he handled lighting very well. Perhaps the most important factor in his success was his skill at depicting people.
Along that line, I posted here about figure drawings he made. In today's post are some Orbik drawings featuring heads.
Now for examples of finished art heads: first, "The Flash" comic book hero.
