Ariel Durant's Wedding Day

I haven't been posting enough old stuff lately, mainly because I'm running out of material. And most of the new work I've been doing is embargoed in one way or another. But I found this pencil sketch from either 1987 or '88. I was reading a biography of Will and Ariel Durant and was charmed by the story of Ariel showing up for their wedding ceremony in her roller skates. She was only 15 at the time so I guess it's less charming now.


  1. No, it's still charming. A wonderful drawing.

  2. I knew Ariel was substantially younger than Will, but I didn't know she was 15. And they lived and worked together for a long time. Shows that there's an exception to every rule. Nice drawing.

  3. Cute drawing actually. Nice to hear that reading something was a catalyst for inspiration.

    And wonderful to hear new work is coming out at some point!
