“Bor Falklighten, Ostrich Rider at Large”

Sketch for the Day

This is a preliminary study for a recurring character that will feature in a lot of my future paintings. He’s loosely based on a friend of mine, Rob Falk.  Bor is a traveler tourist and adventurer who gives a balloon to all whom he meets. In addition he leaves one tied to things for the surprise of the lucky soul who happens to find it.  If there’s a balloon in a painting, you will know that Bor has been there. 😉 This is the photo that inspired this character.

This is the photo of Rob that inspired Bor Falkliter. I met Rob at Second Story Rep Theater. He’s a brilliant lighting technician. He made my set painting and design look really good! I like Rob’s face better than the one I made up so future drawings and paintings will feature his face.
