Sketch of the Week - John Krasinski

I'm a week behind on my sketch of the week. I was hoping to post something on this every week but alas. I should name it something else if I can't keep up to it. Nah... I'll just try harder.
I'm kinda under the weather this week but sometimes when I'm not feeling 100%, my drawings actually work out better. I wonder if any other artists have that happen to them. I think when you're sick, you are not thinking as clearly as you would and everything is more by feel than by design.
My sketch of this week is of John Krasinski. Most know him from the series The Office. I fondly remember him in It's Complicated which also starred Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.
This drawing was done using Sketchbookpro on a Cintiq22HD on a Windows 8 PC.
