so great. that first one kills!
Nicely done. You can really blend subtle cartooning with life drawing. It's so difficult to balance the two...
Hi JoshI would say that this drawing and most of my sketch book stuff is related to Fashion Illustration, which was something I have always wanted to do. I was taught by two great 'drawers' in school, John Lincoln and Eva Roberts. They both really believed in the power of line, and Eva, especially, of the importance of exaggeration and gesture. These things were classically part of the tradition of fashion illustration, and before that, artists like Daumier (who of course did 'cartoons' depicting social commentary). Thanks for noticing, hope we can actually work together someday on a show! I almost got to do a fashion related thing for MadMen TV series this week. Unfortunately, the manufacturer agreed to send some illustrations for the product being featured, so they didn't need to create them. Darn!

Hi!I'm Anthony Zierhut's daughter, Janie. I am thirteen years old and want to be a costume designer. Dad told me that you were a "Phenomenal" artist and that I should check out your blog. You're amazing!! He was so right! My favorite ones are the ones of the belly dancers and these ones! Thank you for being an inspiration!!
Great lines, so fresh. Wondeful sketches.
