Movember.

Last month I decked out my portrait with a rather dashing tash of her own, as well as completing portrait requests for those who wanted more top lip action than nature allowed over on Gallery of Mo!
My favourite illustration to do was of pals Rachel & Jody and I found the commissioned portraits to be great practice, each pushing my ability to draw faces a little bit more. I considered each one as an experiment so they certainly all look a bit different, but I want to thank everyone who donated and chose me as their hairy artiste - it was a pleasure to denote each and every.


Below is doe-eyed darling Kate McStraw (my final portrait request) and despite giving her an honorary 70s trucker tash I have to admit I prefer her pretty face without it. This drawing for me also reflects the beginning of a shift in how I deal with detail: hair in particular beginning to grow in refinement as the month went on.

With every face I draw I learn a little more, and it was all for a good cause! Don't forget to get involved next Movember.

For now, don't you all think it's time for a shave?
