What’s up people? I have a drawing to show you today. It’s part of the series that is basically a conversation between two men. Collectively, the series is called ‘Henry and John’ (or ‘John and Henry’, it doesn’t matter). This is one of my personal favorites in the series, mainly because it reminds me a little of the Faulkner novel ‘Absalom, Absalom’. Probably because that building is a cross between a plantation home and a church. Plus, there’s a sinister quality to the whole thing. Enjoy, and have a great Monday!

Hello all. I have a drawing for you today that has nothing to do with the Confidence Man (well, it’s kinda moody and dark so it’s not completely unrelated). It’s charcoal on paper and part of a short series. Basically, it’s a conversation between to men (John and Henry). Of course, in this particular piece, there’s only the one guy (Henry). I’ll show you the rest later. To make this even more confusing, I’m going to show them out of order so the conversation will be even loopier…feeling a bit impish today.  Have a great one!
