Faces – Edd Tokarz Harnas.
A few years ago, I started doing “a face a day”; it developed into a good practice where I experimented with different styles and media.
While a still life or a landscape enlightens us about the world we inhabit, I find that people are the most interesting source of stories.
When you look at one of my pictures, I hope that you will be drawn in and wonder what that particular story would be.
Ultimately, you are given free range to develop that story any which way you like and your interpretation is part of the fun. It’s also interesting to do the combination portraits and anticipate what the interrelations turn out to be.
Sometimes, I have had people talk to me about one of my pictures, and based on their description, I have no idea which piece they are referring to. And that brings me into your story..

I work in various painting and drawing media and am most interested in portraits, figures and landscapes. If there is a historical aspect to the scene, all the better.
This may encompass the subject or the art style as I continue to study the various techniques of past artists.
Some of the artwork in my Etsy shop is done with a basic ballpoint pen. I find that I’m one of the few using this quite common medium, and have shown pen drawn pieces in juried exhibitions and gallery shows.
There are two main reasons I like drawing with the ballpoint pen. 1) There is the ease and convenience…
If I have some extra time, I can pick up where I left off. There’s no setup, and no messy clean up, etc.
