Sketching: Tom Hiddleston

I can't stop drawing Tom Hiddleston lately... it's like a compulsion. Here's one of him just as himself for a change, based on a photo I saw online and fell in love with!

Drawn over approx. 7 hours using pencils 2B and 7H
My scanner always makes my sketches look faint and odd, so I did just tweak the tone in Photoshop so it could be seen more clearly.

Tuesday Top Ten: Modern Plays

So, it's Tuesday once again and time for another top ten. This time, I'm sharing my favourite modern plays. Just to be clear, in my mind a modern play is anything newer than Shakespeare (!) so the list includes Victorian-era pieces as well as 20th century ones.

1)   Baby Doll - Williams
2)   The Importance of Being Earnest - Wilde
3)   Miss Julie - Strindberg
4)   Art - Reza
5)   A Doll's House - Ibsen
6)   Spring Awakening - Wedekind
7)   The Cherry Orchard - Chekov
8)   Amadeus - Schaffer
9)   Speed-the-Plow - Mamet
10) Boeing-Boeing - Camoletti
