Art Project: Drumhead 1

This is a little different from what I usually post, and I have been working on character sketches for my book so I will be posting those soon, but I had an opportunity to come up with an art project for myself this year, kind of a homework assignment, to see if I could do it. So I'm doing three drumheads, drawing on them, each one of a different drummer, showing images from several decades of the same drummer. Thought this would be interesting. Plus, each drumhead's in a different style. Within a month, I got two done, and I'm working on the third one. So here's the first.

faces I've sketched quickly at work while on breaks (hence the different kinds of pens and lined paper)

I'm an artist writing and drawing a graphic novel that takes place during the Second World War. On this blog I will display the sketches I do in researching and preparing for the book.
