I don’t know what it is about bald men with worried faces. But they’re always so good to draw. I saw this guy speaking on the BBC News (I think he’s a Royal correspondence or something) and I knew I had to draw him. Luckily I got a few shots to work from while he was speaking.
Portrait of Arno Brok—full page in last Saturday’s Leeuwarder Courant.

Original version of the artwork for ‘Oath‘ later colour-matched to the front portrait. Drawn in Kyle brushes.
Finished version, plus the work-in-progress, of a portrait of Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn. Drawn from a mix of video stills using Kyle brushes. Click to look closer, alsjeblieft.
A drawing of Edmundo drawing. This was in a restaurant at the Zaanse Schans (on Gail and Dudley’s combined birthdays). People are particularly good to draw when they’re also drawing. Their minds are on their drawing, so they are quite ‘real’ for a change.
Drawing made in ink, pencil, gel pen and graphite. The yellow background is with one of those highlighter pens, but it ran out towards the end, which is why it’s a different yellow on the right.
Unused illustration of Donald Trump as Captain Cavemen. Or thereabouts. Behind him he drags a deflated world. Commissioned by Handelsblatt. Drawn with Kyle brushes.
