Five Minute Sketch: Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

Baby in one hand, pencil in the other. That’s how I usually work! Baldwin is always interested in what I am working on. It’s really sweet but I’ve had some close calls where he comes up too fast and rips my work out of my hands!

This one is a lot more rough than I would have liked, but Baldwin was grumpy, so I had to stop!

This was drawn on toned paper with black and white soft charcoal pencils.


Blessed Pier is one of my favorite saints, probably because of how much he loved the mountains! (And he was generally a wonderful person.)


“Every day that passes, I fall more desperately in love with the mountains… I am ever more determined to climb the mountains, to scale the mighty peaks, to feel that pure joy which can only be felt in the mountains.”

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
