I try to do something different in every new portrait. Whether it be trying a new paper, new pens, new technique or a new colour scheme, I think it's important to try something new every time in order to progress and develop my skills. 


The 'something different' in this piece is quite simply the predominant use of a colour that never really emerges from my pens.....bright pink.  I use a pink biro a lot but I never press hard enough for it to reveal it's maximum brightness as it were. And it is BRIGHT. I looked at it and thought "Who could I draw that would suit such a vibrant colour scheme?". The first person that came to mind was this fabulously fun and flamboyant fella.

I think he's a perfect fit for this colour scheme, don't you?

Portrait of Harry Styles

  • Upon receipt please handle your portrait with care by the very edges, and do not touch or brush anything against the surface of the paper. It should be kept in a cool, dry environment, out of direct sunlight. I would recommend framing at the earliest opportunity, leaving it in the sleeve until then.

    Where work is on standard sized paper (A4/A3), it should be easy to frame with an off-the-shelf frame, readily available from shops with/without pre-cut mount. However, for optimal results and longevity I would advise going to a professional framer.
