The Beaux in Vintage Tuxedos-Drawing

The Tuxedo Boys: © 


  This black and white drawing features young men in vintage tuxedos for use as a book cover illustration. It was great fun to draw this young, contemporary men in such old-fashioned attire. I used black and grey markers on bristol illustration board. 
Everything was hand drawn. I wisely chose to keep the tuxes in the second row on a grey scale as drawing them in too dark would push them forward. 
Watch in coming weeks for a caricature car decal logo to appear on
Volkswagen Beetle.

   Enjoy, Eileen

Bill and Ann-Live party caricature

Though I am really looking forward to getting back to painting, I have so enjoyed drawing the hundreds of happy faces the last few months. I had the pleasure of meeting this darling couple at a recent event.They were kind enough to send this to me.

    Enjoy, Eileen
