People often ask me what inspires me? Short answer: photography. In particular, portrait photography. I say that because I was going through a little lack of desire to draw lately but came across this fantastic picture of Karlie Kloss by one of my favorite photographers Russell James and it inspired my to draw this. And I’m quite happy I did. Drawn with graphite on vellum. @nomadrj @karliekloss #kennethjfranklin

I often forget to post the scanned versions of my drawings. So here’s the Dita Von Teese I did a little while back. ON a side note: I’m really happy how the hair turned out on this one.

Lindsey and little Allie Rose. Painted with ink and watercolor. @ldbaquie #kennethjfranklin
My favorite days are the ones when I get to deliver a portrait. It makes me happy seeing I made someone happy with my art. Always a good day! Happy Friday everybody! :)
