Yoko Ono

I did this in 19 minutes and video-ed it again, but, alas, it will not upload....I give up! Any advice would be very welcome.

I really like the image, so I carried on a bit longer. It is the same one, honest!

Sir Peter Blake

I got a bee in my bonnet today, and just DID IT, without thinking about it. Fantastic! Video-ed my drawing. that is. But I am now so cross, frustrated, totally bemused, because it will not upload. I have no idea why.

Completely lost the likeness today and ran out of time! One clue.....English politician in the news today. I was pleased with yesterdays' drawing and got over confident, thought I could dash it off with no effort. There is no substitute for observation!

Nick Griffin

I see it is almost a year since I last posted here! I became addicted to trawling through the news every day to find a face to draw, accompanied by an interesting story. I was doing nothing else, which defeated the object of the exercise.
I have decided to try again but I shall spend 1/2-1 hr on each one, no more, and shall not post the accompanying news item. If interested you will have to investigate for yourself, sorry.
So...Nick Griffin.
