Teddy Roosevelt


Recently I was looking through some very old sketch books and most of what I saw made me cringe - why was I storing so much of this junk? But I found a few drawings that I had forgotten about and was pleased to see again. This is one of them. It is a small pencil drawing made more dramatic by an inked background. The actual sketch is surrounded by several pen & ink doodles, which I edited out after I scanned it.

I remember at the time I was reading an outstanding biography of Roosevelt by Edmund Morris.

This looks like a good rendition from other pics I've seen. I beg to differ regarding "junk", I've yet to see junk in your drawings.- Jacqui

Hmmm, you just got lucky then. As I was fishing through all of those old drawings, I decided it was time for many of them go into the "special" circular file, which will be picked up curbside by the nice man in the big truck.

Thanks for the compliment!
