A sketchbook drawing, I toned it and added highlights in Photoshop.

Masterly. I love how this is both at once: a carefully observed study (tight tones to the features) and at the same time, a dynamic sketch (the wide spaced hatching). Wonderful... expresses something about this mans personality.

(Reminds me of the much loved Sir Harry Donald Secombe CBE. UK comedian and tenor singer)
