The Man of Sorrows

This is my Conté crayon sketch depicting The Man of Sorrows in Isaiah 53. I didn't use a model for this—just let it happen. I love the imagery in this passage of a man most would pass without a second glance. The text is very sad and I did my best to convey this in his eyes. This Conté sketch was recently sold at an auction with the profits directed toward Masterpiece Ministries—which provides a series of workshops for young adults concentrating on painting, writing, dance, theater, film, music and graphic design. Timothy Botts, one of the most incredible calligraphy artists in America heads up the program.
