Fraser


This is Fraser, I drew him while we were sitting outside the Heartland Brewery having a pint. I've know Fraser since we were both 17 and attending art college in Falmouth, England. I hadn't seen him in about a decade but he came to see in in England when I was back in February and now here we are again. Where does the time go.

Fraser is much uglier than that.

Thanks all, I've had a crazy week this week, actually a crazy month, it was good to see Fraser again and i was pleased because he really wanted the drawings.

So, lucky, to be able to catch up and enjoy the things inbetween.

Fraser said...

I find the subject matter somewhat questionable ha ha.
I have been told that the upper face is brilliant (in the sketch), the lower face not quite accurate.
One has to know, we were sat outside "The Heartland Brewery" having a jaw-wag at the time.
Fantastic Steve.

I agree, the bottom part of the face is too long, whatyagonnado?

Munich Newman said...

I am currently stretching the bottom part of my face with a large German Biekrug, then the sketch will be perfect.
It's either that or nip back over and keep my trap shut.

Stephen Gardner said...

Yeah nip back and I'll do you right.
