Occupy Provo

I Found this blog called Portraits of the Occupy Movement where they show people's drawings of the protestors. I wanted to submit something so I went down and met the protestors. These are my drawings from a small protest in Provo Utah that happened on the 19th of October 2011 on Center Street near the Nu Skin building. The protest was pretty small, there were only five people, so I made a drawing of everyone there.

These are really really great Adam. This semi-realistic line drawing style of yours is really working. Have you tried doing more? Celebrities? Maybe they look best when the person is right in front of you. If you painted these really large, I could see them in some art gallery that's into odd/pop-art type stuff.
What if you went to another Occupy whatever rally and drew the people? It could be fun. I'm just tossing out ideas because you have some really good work here.

Thanks Mike! Yeah, I want to do more drawings of the Occupiers and I think it would be fun to do a bunch of celebrities. I agree, I should make more I really like how these turned out.
