Rhythm of the Heat
This is an "olde" sketch from my Denton, TX days that is my impression of a postcard I got in Houston and forever intertwined in my head with the Peter Gabriel song The Rhythm of the Heat. The image from the postcard I am in love with, but don't think I have the original hanging around anymore. It portrays, as I remember from the blurb on back of the card, the winner of a wrestling match being carried on the shoulders of his buddy. Over the years I have drawn this particular image with all types of pastels, pencils, pens, etc and in a multitude of sizes. This red and black one is one of my favorites.
