David Bowie (commission)
Our Lady of Lourdes (statue restoration and painting)
Hockey with Grampa (pencil portrait)
This is a commissioned work that I did for a colleague at work. He wanted a portrait of himself with his granddaughter at the first and only time he played hockey with her, so that they would both remember the day.
Ellen (pencil portrait)
Ellen DeGeneres is another person I do admire, for everything she is and everything she does. I just had to do a portrait of her as well. This portrait is the first in my whole series of portraits of people I admire or just simply want to draw.
Drew (pencil portrait)
I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of Drew Barrymore, but this image was just absolutely stunning I had to draw it. It was for an ad in a magazine. It seems tinted yellow because of the light filter on my camera.
Obama (pencil portrait)
Sometimes, I do a sketch just to see if I can do it. When I started sketching portraits, I chose striking personalities or images, mainly of people I admired for some reason or another. Other choices might be of significant historical figures. I makes me feel connected to history in the making. The portrait I will not sketch is of someone whom I can never admire, for many reasons. I did this portrait of Barack Obama, the first African-American president, shortly after his election into office. It was an incredible moment, to see him elected. This does not mean I admire US politics at all, but because of the way it directly affects the rest of the world, I do follow it and have my opinions, which I will not share here. This portrait is now in a private collection.
