Remembering the Good Fight



Remembering The Good Fight


Leaving an Opening


Belly Punch


Unanticipated Result


“MT” modeled for a costumed figure drawing session yesterday wearing equipment from his boxing days. It was clear he still isn’t sure those days are over. There were poses requested to get a better view of his face he objected to. His trainer/coach would have a fit, he said, leaving him so open to an easy blow to the head.
1st and 2nd: 9”x 12” fountain pen, oil sanguine and chalk on toned paper
3rd and 4th: 17”x 14” ballpoint pen on mixed use paper.

  1. Bonsoir cher Anthony,

    Oh oh !... De superbes dessins ! sur le thème de la boxe... vraiment intéressant.
    Dans le premier dessin votre modèle semble se lamenter et désespéré... a-t-il peur de perdre ?... sourire.
    Bravo pour ce très joli travail.

    Gros bisous ☼

    1. It was interesting drawing the protection around his head instead of the portrait.. It became the portrait in a way.
      I was wondering about the audience.. A bigger audience would probably have been needed for his career as a fighter to have advanced.
      Thank you

  5. Oh WOW...he so jumps out of the picture...I am transported into the ring...I hear the cheering of the crowd...feel the nervousness of the boxers...the dreadful humiliation as the felling blow is delivered...the shame of lying there, so publicly, on the floor.
    The atmosphere is so powerful...this is amazing...:)
