"Faces of the known" series

These drawings are about 4.5"x5". A pen drawing on paper is beneath a thin layer of partially transparent mylar and then drawn on with conte.

 I was experimenting with layers and line quality. I wanted to complete a few studies of the faces I see almost everyday. While completing these drawings I discovered there is so much we don't notice about each-other, so much detail that never gets recognized in our day to day routines. I took note of every little detail and expression, and found interest in these faces that I had always thought I had known, but never in this way.
