Bill's Eye (Day 2) 2010.08.11

August 2010: I intend to continue to profile contemporary artists once or twice a week. On the other days, I intend to draw... whatever I darn well feel like!


Today's portrait is of American artist Bill Rogers, known on flickr as Giveawayboy. Bill has a great eye for darks and lights and how they shape volume, apparent in both his photographs and drawings. He works in a variety of media, from markers to digital, but I particularly love his portraits in pen. I've also really appreciated his generous spirit and even-handed attitude in group discussions at the Portrait Party.


You can see Bill's artwork on his flickr imagestream:


Photos of Bill and other artists' portraits of him can be seen here:

We're having a Portrait Party on flickr - more than 300 artists drawing each other! Below is Bill's portrait of me from the party. If you're an artist who'd like to draw/paint other flickr artists, please join the Portrait Party at:
