Visual Vocabulary: Panegyrist

Hello again! After a two week holiday hiatus, I am feeling refreshed and ready to draw an entire year's worth of visual vocabularies. I actually drew most of this one while sitting in my car at the parking lot at the gym, killing time before my kickboxing class started and attempting not to turn into a Rado-cicle in the ice vortex or whatever it is they're calling this awful cold weather. Drawing and working out—killing two birds with one stone and all that other new years resolution stuff.

I think I came across Panegyrist in Thirteen Moons. Anyway, every time I look at the word it seems like it should involve a man hula hooping (because of it makes me think of gyrating) and excitedly selling something (perhaps a hula hoop?) My husband thinks this is the scariest looking person I have ever drawn. I'm sure I could do worse given the chance. 


Visual Vocabulary is a project I created for myself in which I attempt to sear new words into my memory by illustrating them. You can see all of them here.
