These works are done by one of my favorite sketch artists, Don Nace. The top one “Just Passing Through” is by far my favorite and was featured in the movie “Across The Universe” along with all of the main character Jude’s artwork also done by Nace. His sketches capture a wide range of raw human emotion and are mostly autobiographical. He started drawing as a young child to find comfort after the death of his father. His 2005 book “Drawn Out” is a great place to start exploring this amazing artist.
