Sherrod Brown Sketchbook

Sherrod Brown, the Democratic candidate for Senator from Ohio, also visited the Enquirer editorial board yesterday. While his expressive features are easy to capture, it is his posture and gestures that make Brown such a singular figure to draw. He never stopped leaning far across the big conference table, craning forward as if to take each of us by the collar and knock some sense into us. Brown came across as an aggressive personality who would shake things up, but who might be a poor listener and have trouble playing well with others.

Sherrod Brown is actually a great listener. If you watch him meeting with voters he seems to spend about 75% of the time listening to them.

When I interviewed him earlier this year before hand he asked me about my grandfather, who he'd heard was a Democratic State Senator in Indiana. We talked for at least 10 minutes on that before moving onto my wife and son. The freaky thing is that he'll meet you six months later and still remember all the details.

Is the fact that you're practicing drawing Brown a prediction that he'll be winning in November?

Why do you keep drawing that White guy instead of Sherrod Brown?
