Very much an amateur hobby, self-thought, I was influenced by seeing a cousin do movie posters when I was young. I started by mostly using pencils and cotton swabs. I have done a few oil paintings very early on at the start of my hobby, around 2005-6. Most portraits are of people in the public eye. Some, you might recognize, others you might not, due to a lack of skill on my part. I’ve ever only drawn two people I personally knew and didn’t think I did them any justice.
I feel that you see the people you know in very different ways and I’ve never been skilled enough to capture that.
Thanks for taking the time to appreciate one of my hobbies.
