Skipping Day 4 for personal reasons. Day 5: What I wrote about this at the time: I tried a slightly different approach in this drawing of my friend Dylan, who is a writer? ( I do hope he doesn’t use this for his author portrait, or the rather unflattering selfie this is based on; he […]
First of a series of portraits of friends, family and colleagues. This one’s pretty rough but this part of the series is where all the progress took place. Day 3: What I wrote about this at the time: My friend Kasia B, drawn January 5, from a selfie shared privately on Facebook. …I think this […]
Day 2: What I wrote about this at the time: Portrait of comedian W. Kamau Bell, based on a publicity photo by John Novak on mr. Bell’s website. I don’t know that much about Mr. Bell. He’s a socio-political comedian and dad, and a relative of writer N.K. Jemisin, who I follow on Facebook. Every […]
Amy Harmon on Twitter argues that any suggestion that disgraced geneticist James Watson is being persecuted for heresy like Galileo was are unfounded, because instead of speaking truth to power based on evidence, Watson has been making evidence-free claims in service of power.

And after 20-odd drawings focused on boobs, we’re back to faces for a bit. I’m sure you’ll find it a welcome change even if the first face you get to look at is affable Brexiteer and drummer Ringo Starr. I started this Portrait January off with some celebrities, then put out a call on Facebook […]
This went up on DeviantArt on January 1, 2017. Now that I no longer drink as much on New Years’ Eve, I am usually functional enough on New Year’s Day to draw. What I wrote about this at the time: I know I said I was done with Decemboobs and ready to move on to […]
Officially the last of this series but some bonus art turned up later. Originally posted on DeviantArt on December 28. Day 23: What I wrote about this at the time: Based on this post from Contently You, which I found in my Likes from last year. I was very tempted to count this as a […]
Day 22: What I wrote about this at the time: I had a bunch of different plans for today, but then I spent more time than expected on my webcomic Abúi’s Travels. And I found this source image from Mellow?Mami, which I had stored in my Tumblr likes last year to draw this year. Now, […]
