Tesla Sketchla

One of the greatest scientific minds of this or any other age. Who else blasted x-rays through Mark Twain's head? No one, that's who. He beat the pants off Edison, invented the electric motor that's still used in hundreds of appliances in our homes today and died penniless and insane. That's what I call genius! ZAP!

I thought this sketch turned out o.k. I haven't picked up my poor lonely brush in months and felt suddenly compelled to grab it and draw something, anything, straight in ink. It looks like Tesla... a little. I think I'll try a more forgiving medium next and try to capture his look a little better. I love drawing those old fashioned coats and collars though. What do you think?
