New Year’s Day: Girl with Atomic Hair and Man with Disintegrated Hat

I sketched this on New Year’s Day. My blind drawing technique served me well when transcribing the rightmost young woman’s hair: the outline is accurate. However, it looks more like a mushroom cloud than a hairdo. Possibly, the addition of interior detail would disguise this visual association.

The ball cap on the man on the left did not fare as well. I began with the brim and my eyes and pen point traced the glasses perched thereon. The finished circuit of the hat outline resulted in an ‘exploded view’ (in mechanical drawing terms).

Let’s hope this sketch is not a harbinger of the year to come.
