I have drawn several hundreds of portraits in my life, I think. When I really love someone’s work, I get inspired and like to draw their portrait. My best portraits are of people that really, truly inspired me. I think I have become a decent portraitist over the years, but there is still only one portrait that I feel is perfect. Only one portrait that I feel that is right in each and every way. It’s not easy being a perfectionist, eh?!
Here’s a selection of my favourite portraits. At the bottom are the first portraits I’ve ever drawn, when I was approximately 9 years old. Can you guess who they are meant to be?
