Like many other bright young hopefuls, I am a recent entrant into this years D&AD Student Awards. For now I will show you my portrait of Gary Oldman in 'Tinker Tailor Solider Spy' as placed on a mock-up Little White Lies cover. According to rule number 2.6.2 in the fine print I cannot disclose the full entry online until after the winners are shortlisted, which is funny because I could've sworn I saw other George Smileys, Black Swans and... that guy from Drive(s) running wild on google images. Shame for this chap I'm a rule keeper, however I can let slip that when the LWL logo is in place it covers up his dapper hair slightly - shocking I know. It also has a background, and some words.
Proud of the likeness, I enjoyed studying his characterful (yes, and old) face. It is also the first drawing I have ever emailed to my mum.
Of all the blogs, in all the internet, in all the world, you walk into mine.
