29 Faces Days 1 - 5


I've been drawing faces as part of the 29 faces in February challenge. I started with a few fun faces by Quentin Blake:






I then decided to see if I could draw Simon Mayo, a Radio 2 presenter of the drive time show, in the style of Quentin Blake, it's not a bad attempt but I couldn't quite fix the hairline on the left hand side of his face
 Day 5 and I came across a lovely picture of a girl with a serene expression and beautiful flowers in her hair and the quote by Matisse seemed very appropriate.
"There are always flowers for those who want to see them"..Henri Matisse

  5. When I first saw the faces by Quentin Blake I was thinking that you had done them and your style was just like his--I adore him and Roald Dahl's stories. You did a great job of replicating his fun style! I would love to illustrate like he does too!
