John Lydon  (graphite drawing) by markstewart John Lydon  (graphite drawing) by markstewart
A bit of fan art to round the year off ..
           Graphite pencils on A2 format smooth Bristol from a reference photo by Pete Dadds petedadds.com/

It has taken two attempts at getting this one to work .. 30hrs going nowhere on the first but i'm happy with this one. The first time i have drawn the same person twice (non commission) and this one shows his full character .. i'm not really that happy about adding the cigarette but it wouldn't be the same without it stuck in that gap in his teeth.

Who?: .. front man of P.I.L. and sex pistols back in the day.
