Out Of My Sketchbook-Getting Hit



A double feature today. Two sketches, from my sketchbook, of people getting hit in the face. A strange subject, I know, but I was trying to capture the moment of surprise and pain. I tried to give these quick sketches a bit of a comic book feel- like they are a part of a story.

    I can relate to this pic. I remember standing out far from the action (I thought) at school one day and suddenly copping a soft ball right in my eye socket. No harm done but my sympathetic (!) PE teacher wrote in my report that term ‘could try harder’ and ‘needs to be more coordinated’. I was so happy when I didn’t have to do school sport ever again.

  2. Like the sketches but not the hit part. Worst hit is from a plumber.
