Here is a 5 x 7 drawing of singer/songwriter, Jon McLaughlin. I first drew Jon back in 2008 and have been wanting to do an update. I've loved Jon's music ever since I first heard him sing “So Close” back in 2007 on the movie Enchanted. That song still is the ring tone for when my husband calls me. Jon truly has a beautiful voice. If you aren't familiar with his music, I urge you to give him a listen.
This is my third guy drawing in a row and none of the guys are from Star Wars or Marvel! I think this has to be a first for me. I'm trying to improve my man drawing skills. Hopefully the practice is helping. Now I need to go draw something frilly and girly or I may start riding a Harley or feel the need to go logging. Lol!
I have no rights to Jon McLaughlin's image and the reference is from a tour poster.
