I have a collection of school yearbooks I’ve found at thrift store. This guy was in one of them in a collage of parents/kids near the front of the book. Seems like a cool grandpa to me. Maybe he should pick up a shirt that’s a little larger next time. Not that he would listen to my advice.

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 Dan. Click image to see it bigger.

I have a rather large collection of thrift store yearbooks and I’ve been drawing some random folks in them.
This is Richard. He was a chemistry teacher in a 1962 yearbook I found.

I had jury duty yesterday. I didn’t get picked but I did spend a lot of the time sketching. Here’s a little gif of some of the arts I did.

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.

The Assistant Principal in a thrift store yearbook. The look on his face seemed like he really didn’t want to be there for picture day at all. I started coloring him and he ended up turning into a Romero zombie, which seemed appropriate with that look of his.

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.
