Hair Drawings

November 1st, 2009

Below are some of the preparatory drawings I did for a series of t-shirt designs I’ve been working on lately. Most of the drawings below are based on photos from my high school yearbook, but there is some famous hair in there, too. Can you spot the celebrity hair?

    These are great, Dan! Wish I could draw hair like that!

    I think I see Brad Pitt, Sd Vicious, and Mick Jagger, and James Dean… Why is it only dudes I recognize??

    Haha that’s great! I didn’t look at photos of any of those celebrities while drawing this, but I can see where you thought you saw those people… maybe the drawing has acted as a celebrity hairstyle Rorschach test of sorts.

    The celebrity hairstyles in the drawing are Farrah Fawcett (second row), Johnny Ramone (third row), Bob Dylan (fourth row), and Elvis (fifth row).

    Here’s one of the shirt designs that resulted partially from these drawings: ‘Pop People’ at Threadless/Tate ‘Pop Life’ comptetition
