I thought I'd reduce a drawing to a few crucial lines and see if it was still an effective drawing. As I've been on a face kick lately, I tried one on. This is a gel pen drawing with some slight color pencil added. It measures roughly 5 by 7.5 inches. Yes, I know what you're thinking. Is it actually Original Jones Art? The odds are leaning in that direction, here in that sun drenched/baked city of Austin, Texas.

Interesting, but nicely done.

Artist Reply: Hey, Wes! Thanks for the nice comment. It's my belief that many times less is truly more. How much is enough and how much is too much? These are questions that are as much about living as they are about artistic endeavor. Hope you are doing great, BTW. Me? I'm just drawing my life away these days. :)
