Why did You pick this picture?
This was the portrait I spent the longest on. I think it’s my best one yet and has the most detail compared to my other artwork.
Where did the idea come from?
I’m a massive fan of Chris Brown and had thought about drawing him for ages, I hadn’t really drawn anyone with tattoos properly before so this was a challenge but loved taking the time to do every bit of it.
What does this art mean to you?
It shows how far I’ve come as when I started drawing portraits at the age of 14/15 I hated doing them as I was awful, but after years of practicing I got better and now portraits are my favourite and I’m still improving.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I’m 21 years old and from Ireland, I’ve been drawing since I was little and have recently started as a tattoo apprentice so hopefully I can put my artwork out there and make my own style.
What more can you tell us about your artwork?
At the moment my style is mainly portraits using charcoal and tattoo designs using pen, but I hope to start using colour soon and maybe painting and I’m still learning and improving everyday and I love learning new styles.
