Leonardo I'm Not
When I do a drawing, I strive for perfection. I am trying to make it look as real as possible. Basically I'm trying to make it look like a photograph. The only problem is they never come out that way. I struggle and stumble and constantly make mistakes. In the end my sketches look nothing like what I am trying to do. That is how I developed my style. You can always tell a Tommy Kane drawing. Most people just don't know that I'm a very good artist who makes really bad drawings. In my mind I set out to make a brilliant James Jean type of drawing and I always fall way short. Hence, the look of the my work. I wanted this to look like a Leonardo sketch. that was my intention. Instead it's a glorified cartoon with some color splashed on it. I guess I just have to keep on trying. That's what keeps me going.
