FACES - PORTRAITS
Doyen of style and luxury. Patriarch and Chairman of Montegrappa Italia.
Critically acclaimed Boston-born and Los Angeles-based Haitian-American musical artist, mistress of the beats and rapper.
Jacqui, the girl from the local café
with the looks of a Renaissance beauty. Occasionally a person comes along with beauty so captivating,
I just need to draw it.
This was the case with Jacqueline.
Ricky (fucking) Gervais
Stand-up comedian, actor, screenwriter, director, producer, musician, presenter and author.
I got a bad case of tremors during this drawing and messed up Ricky's face!...in frustration and temper I put the big red cross through it.
I decided to leave it like this.
The title reflects what I was muttering at the time!
This is a study I did of my dear
friend, American actress, producer and activist, Ellen Barkin. The full drawing was damaged, again caused by my tremors, when I knocked over a bottle of blue ink,
while reaching for a brush.
After my initial anger at being so clumsy, I came to like the 'look' of the blue spill, as it seemed to echo the 'attitude'
of this wonderful woman.
