Thick Black Glasses No. 4

Its been a while since I did a BIG face wearing thick black glasses. This one has been in the works (my head) for a while but just needed a prompt (kick up the backside) to get it done. As you know I love thick black glasses and I love Lisa Loeb's music AND she just happens to wear... What you didn't know is that my husband has a thing for librarians which is strange because he married me and I have never worn glasses (up until now that is...) but he does hang out in bookstores a lot... hmmm. Anyway, decided to do something special for him (partner/manager/buttkicker/inspiration) for Valentines Day this year, not that I believe in it but might as well make the most of it. Sort of killing two birds with one stone really, a present for his majesty AND getting that next BIG face out of my head and onto paper...

Thick Black Glasses No. 4 - this is sort of a tribute to Lisa Loeb, librarians and women in general who wear thick black glasses (cool). Sketched using pastels on a big piece of cartridge paper (approx. 60 x 85cm) on the floor because its so messy (love it).  Really enjoyed drawing the hair and yes, I know she doesn't have red hair but just had to get that orange in somewhere...
