The authors series came about after friends, who’d seen and liked my composer portraits, began to request author portraits too. The subject is close to my heart, as a long time ago I did an English Literature degree. It’s an intimate business to draw your heroes!
I work by drawing a pencil sketch first, then using the guide lines, I paint an ink drawing of the subject. Finally I add colour digitally, according to what hue I deem right for that person.
I license my work, so please get in touch if you wish to use my illustrations in magazines etc.
