I have a rather large collection of thrift store yearbooks and I’ve been drawing some random folks in them.
This is Abi. He was in a technical school yearbook from 1994. Not too sure what weirdness he was doing with his neck in the photo, but I hope it’s resolved now.

I found a yearbook for Normal Community High School in Normal, Illinois from 1961 at a thrift store. This is an ink and watercolor portrait of the principal.

The local thrift store is a goldmine as far as old yearbooks go. I’ve picked up 20 or so from them over the last couple years. I’m going through them and drawing some of the folks within.
Here’s an ink and watercolor of Father Stavros from a local Christian school.

Another one of those Army guys from a thrift store book. This guy seems like he didn’t really want his picture taken. At all. He’s got wars and shit on his mind.

I found this in a store display used to test pens. It was probably written on by two different people, but I like to think somebody’s list of importance includes Jesus and Angry Birds. In that order.

Haven’t really messed around doing medical-style illustrations since doing this huge commission, so I thought I’d give it another try. You ever see a leg like this?

I was lucky enough to find several church directories at the local thrift store. I’ve been drawing my favorite folks from it.
This is Jane. Click image to see it bigger.

Me and Jon (his Tumblr here) had a drink and draw the other day with the theme of “Bad Video Games”. Although I would actually play the ones I made. Who doesn’t want to comb a werewolf’s hair?

I found this paper with an hourglass drawn on it on a walk. I guess they were trying to explain how they work.

After making that new entry in my Ugly Mermaids series yesterday, I thought about revisiting some other stuff I used to do. I still have a collection of church directories so I figured I’d draw another in my Believer series. The original set was all done digital, but I’ve been trying to get back into analog-style drawings lately, so it’s pens and markers with Jonathan here.
