Inventor of dynamite, and propagator of the Nobel Prize. He's a rather dapper looking fellow here, and was kind enough to model for me. He was very still and didn't say a thing the whole time. For the upcoming art show my group is having, the theme is Nobel. In Sweden, December 10th is Nobel day. He was a Swedish inventor. I'm still not to sure exactly what I will have on display. I have some wild ideas, but they seem hard to conceptualize. I might make it easier on myself and paint or draw a portrait. I checked online and there isn't much art on this guy except from when he was still alive and blowing things up.

I was very pleased with this drawing. At first. Now I'm seeing some things that need a little adjusting. Its funny how seeing a drawing after its scanned or the size is reduced, you can pick up on some of the mistakes, and changes that are needed. My daughter was a very good model for this one. She was reading her Disney Princess magazine, and it helped her to keep her pose. I won't take full credit for the nose. My wife helped fix it after I drew it to big. I am very happy with most of the results.
Another phalaenopsis, but this time one of Mother-n-laws. Its my first attempt to draw one, or any flower from the back. The one on the right did not come out as good as I hoped. (Next time)
Not the best likeness. He looks more like a sentimental Jesus than a melancholy grudge rocker. I've been listening to Nirvana alot lately, and the local Swedish rock station plays them frequently. The other day I drew a girl playing a cello, and wearing a Nirvana shirt. She was the same age I was when I first started listening to the band. Kinda weird, but made me happy at the same time. I wonder how or fathers felt when they first saw a younger generation wear clothing with the names of their favorite bands from their youth.
From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah [Live] - Its Nirvana, its live, you can pretend they are in your living room, or car. Sliver: The Best of the Box - Alot of their demos, early recordings, some early live work, and alternate takes
