I hope I got the colour of your t.shirt right John:)
After the Jim Cooper exhibition the other day I decided to do a fun cartoonish portrait of the next person who gave me an award, as a way of saying thankyou. Just so happens that it was John who's the lucky recipient! SURPRISE!! (I hope you like surprises!)
It dosn't really help that I have never actually seen John....
None the less I did learn from Jim Cooper that art/drawing is what ever you want it to be. I applied lots of imagination and painted this upside and working quickly I tried not to think and somehow dictate what the finished painting looked like. I guess everyone has a mind picture of what some-one looks like based on the things they do or don't reveal. This was a bit if fun to do and I hope there's no offence taken!
Ps: John, you very nearly got a blue dress shirt and paisley print tie...but I am fresh out of paisely printed paint today:)
