A drawing I made of my grandfather, Chief Master Sergeant John Willie Griffith. The original photo was taken around 1952 as he was just joining the Air Force, which he stayed in for 20 years.

Got to see my own drawing in its very own spot at the 1813 Clerk's Office Museum today (at the top.) I'm very proud to have my work alongside the paintings by those such as Preston Moses, Carson Davenport, and Nancy Compton.

Here's a fun Christmas commission I did for the son of the buyer. He does Civil War reenacting and I had the opportunity to draw this great portrait of him and his family together. I had a lot of interest in doing this one.

Another Christmas commission which I actually enjoyed drawing immensely. I had never drawn tobacco barns before and was surprised at the little technique I used which made the process quite long but still simple.

Here was one of the Christmas Commissions I worked hard on last week. I really liked how it turned out and know the people who got it for a Christmas must have too.

A drawing I made of past president Andrew Jackson from an actual photo rather than a painting. Photography was in its very early years by the time Jackson died, so it's great that he was able to have a few made.

On Saturday I got to have my first meet and greet at the mall. I think it went well and I enjoyed sharing my drawings with the people. I sold a few prints and got a customer who wants a commission as well. My prints are now being sold at Karen's Hallmark. Pictured beside me is my friend Dianne.

This is one of my favorite drawings I think I've ever done. It's gotten the most in depth feedback out of all the others I believe.

A few weeks back I drew the old 1767 Callands Clerks office. I reimagined the building, since as of now there are steps with railing, bushes out front, and more trees. I added a horse and presumably a clerk to the photo. This is how I imagine it was around 1770.

Here's one from last month - a portrait I drew of General Jackson. I really enjoy his deathbed quote, "Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees."

One I did a while back of General Robert E. Lee. I've been selling prints of this and a few others and it's been going well. I knew before I finished this one that it would be one of my best.

More on the sketchy side than usual, but I was just in the mood for a 1700s portrait. It was nice to not have to refine everything so much for once.

Drawing I made quite a while back of a bit of local history, which spread widely as you know. The Wreck of the Old 97 - it reached the attention of others thanks to Vernon Dalhart and his song recording by the same name. It was the first country song to sell a million copies. It mentions White Oak Mountain, which I can see from the front porch.

Here's a drawing from last month I did just for fun. I've always loved the military uniforms of the 1700s and so I drew one.

Here's a Confederate Civil War soldier that I drew some time back. I had been wanting to draw one for a while and I finally got around to it. I'm not sure who the man in specifically, but nonetheless, I'm happy with how his uniform turned out.

I felt like drawing a Native American some time ago, and so I did. It took a lot longer than I expected it to but I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I drew this some time ago of Yates Tavern in Gretna. I don't usually do buildings or especially foliage but I thought it was good for a try. This drawing will most likely be framed in the 1813 Clerk's office in Chatham.

Here's a drawing I made of the sister of my x2 great grandmother and then her husband who died in 1918 due to dust inhalation (he built coffins). #portrait #drawing #1900s #art #arts_help #artistic_unity_ #artist_features #cabinetcard #artist_4_shoutout #history #sketchbook #kylegriffithsketches

This is a drawing I made some time ago of a picture I took of my dresser in my room. It was a nice change away from doing portraits all the time.

I drew this picture some time ago of an unnamed 5th great grandfather of mine. The original photo is an 1840s daguerreotype, to which I have narrowed down to two possible identities. Until I am certain, he is just a 5th great grandfather. He is old enough to have served in the war of 1812.
