29 FACES - DAY 3

I live in Seattle.  If you are tuned into American happenings, then you should know that yesterday was the Superbowl and the Seattle Seahawks won.  So, you can guess what was on the front page of the Seattle Times.  [My challenge is to draw a face from the front page of the Times for that day.]

Yes, it was a full page color photo of the Quarterback holding the trophy with the coach standing next to him.  There was confetti falling down all around them.  I chose the coach.  

This is a pen and ink drawing, colored with Derwent watercolor pencils, with just a little water here and there, mostly the background.  After I messed up the face of yesterday's guy, I didn't want to put water on this face.

This is drawn from a photo on the front page of the Seattle Times, Monday, February 3, 2014.  The photo is credited to Jon Lok.
