Elvis of the Day #106

Mr. Presley Goes to Washington

When attempting to draw 365 of these, there's a good chance that I might repeat one I've tried in the past once in a while. I drew from this same photo about 2 years ago. This one is better.

Elvis of the Day #100

I draw Elvis every day, and have not stopped since the 1st of the New Year. Today is the 100th day of 2008.

Why Elvis? There's an abundance of reference photos available, and for years I've been trying to draw something every day, even when I don't feel like it. So why not have a theme? I figured a day-by-day desk calendar would be a good start, and how great would it be to have 365 Elvi at the end of the year?! From here on I will post the ones I like (past or present).

I'm not entirely happy with this one. His chin is too pointy, the ear is all wrong, the folds in his jacket are weak, and I generally suck at profiles. But I had to post this, for #100 is quite the milestone.


So I finally caved in and started one of these. Everyone has their own excuse for joining, so I'll spare an explanation.

Most blogs seem to read, "Get a load of me", and I will do my damnedest to avoid that.

One thing that makes me cringe in the artists' blog world is the use of the word "just". Ex: "Here is something I just did before breakfast", or "This is just a 5 minute warm-up sketch I did on a napkin I found". If you ever catch me doing that, I wish to be reprimanded immediately. If you live near by, by all means, come over and whip my fingers.

I loathe several things behind the concept of a blog, but there are several I read every day. Some motivate me to work harder, put me to shame, or occasionally spark an idea. If I can do one of those things for just one person, then perhaps this will not be a waste.
