flagitious:


I was out sick the past few days but glad I can go back to sketching again.
What an interesting word, flagitious! When I read the definition the small sketch on top was the first thing that popped into my mind, close to the Grinch from ‘The Grinch Who Stole Christmas’! But I find that it’s too cliche and perhaps this image was something that popped up in the memory banks that I saw a long time ago. The more I pondered this word, flagitious, the more I think about today’s most talked about scandal. Thus…
The sketch on the right was the first one I sketched out but quickly, from a photo of course found online. Finally I decided to sketch with greater effort to at least have the image resemble the guy!
