Pregnant Piera #7


My favorite model, Piera, is pregnant right now, and can't work around oil paint toxins. So I'm doing a bunch of different drawings and watercolors of her, trying to switch techniques and media as much as possible. This is one of a bunch of very fast drawings I did the other day. I hardly ever draw like this because it tends to look like a certain French artist who shall remain nameless here. Actually, this is my completely natural uncensored line; I've had it since I was about 5. Too bad it's already taken…

Oh, hey  – I'm featured on tomorrow (Sunday Jan. 3). And if you like my work, please take a second to go to:

and vote me ten stars. But watch out – it's a nude, so don't do this at the office!

Thanks, all –
