May 23, 2008 Bonus Blog Post
Got inspired this afternoon by Gus Walker, the Mapinator. He sent me an email asking me if I was familiar with the artist Robert Henri, of the so-called Ashcan School of Art. I actually wasn't, so I Googled Mr. Ashcan and got a whole bunch of museum sites that own his paintings. Perusing them I got inspired to do some sketches off his amazing style:

All of today's sketches are inspired by Mr. Henri, with the exception of a William Merritt Chase self-portrait (bottom, right) which was on one of the sites.

Thanks Gus! I appreciate the inspiration.
