I actually did these months ago now, but some non-watercolor Blair seemed called for by way of introduction.
The writing in the corner can just be ignored. Sometimes I take down the lyrics to whatever I am listening to on my sketch page. These particular lyrics are from Ben Folds Five's song "Mess". I guess it is a kind of Blair song, but it doesn't have to be seen as part of the piece.

Every once in a very great while I do a watercolor painting that I actually like. This is one such happy occassion. I think this may be the best picture of my character Blair yet! (I have been drawing him for roughly six years now.)
Blair started his life when I started high school- along with his pals Kayla, Alan, Daphne and Raine. Since then they have starred in high school sitcom sketches, science fiction, westerns, Shakespeare and various historical fiction pieces. They are my "go to" characters when I feel like trying out a new setting or story line but haven't come up with persons to populate them. I like to think of them as a drama club- and all definitions of drama tend to apply.
