sam and dave and other black and whites

i´ve always been a huge fan of cross-hatching. maurice sendak, robert crumb... they sure knew how to work a nib. while in buenos aires, i encountered the work of photographer, fĂ©lix nadar.

his photographs got me thinking about the potential of portraiture and so, it´s something that´s been on my mind. here are some portraits drawn and cross-hatched from a little while back.
