This is a stunning pen drawing by Frank Gutierrez of a shirtless African-American boy. This by far one of the most detailed and complete Gutierrez drawings to come out of the 80s. His cross-hatching technique reaches new, near-flawless heights here, as he renders the shape and texture of skin and hair alike with equal perfection. Gutierrez once again reasserts himself as a master of both expression and natural human form and movement. Breathtakingly beautiful.
