Hello hello, I'm still alive. Apologies for the long absence, up here in the university town of Loughborough we have been having Freshers Week (fortnight!) so a hundred and one things have all been crying out for my attention.
I drew it as a commission for a friend, and she was very specific about what the style, colours, everything was going to look like, right down to the exact tone of red for the background. It's just a straightforward portrait but I rather like it. He changed a bit from the sketching stage when he was a lot more angular and stylised. Billy Connolly is a very funny guy, but darn it when you break his face down into it's constituent parts he has got some scary features!
