This is a figure drawing I did during the Australian Open, studying the body position of the one-handed backhand.
Tennis pros like Richard Gasquet (French) and Stanislas Warwrinka (Swiss) both have amazing and powerful one-handed backhands. It requires more muscle strength and may not be as accurate, but it allows extra reach and ‘snap’ as opposed to the two-handed.

Although I didn’t wake up at 4am (eastern time) to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, I did record hours of it on the DVR. And I was engaged by the British attention to detail, from the funny hats to the brilliant classic Aston Martin. But what was most appealing to me was their horse and carriage, so I just had to draw a cartoon sketch of their ride from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

The is definitely the grandest still-life I had ever drawn. It was extra special to do because groups of school kids would pass behind me and comment. They were amused by my sketching of the enormous subject.
This is my first post of 2011. Happy New Year, everybody!
