UN-enlarged view is about the size of the actual drawing :D:D

I've had the reference photo of this saved for over a year. I loved the highlights and the challenge with his hair and the "negative space" work required. I'm still too impatient to do it correctly, but this is the best I can do for now.

This is Jeremy Lister, singer-songwriter. He toured with our son in the "TEN OUT OF TENN" tour in December of 2009, and was most recently on NBC's hit TV show "SING OFF". He and his group, the "Street Corner Symphony" made it to 2nd place, and is about to start a tour with Ben Folds.

Here is a cool video of our boy Andrew Belle, playing in the back of the TOT tour bus, along with Jeremy Lister, Matthew Perryman Jones and Andy Davis

I drew this for a friend I've never met on Twitter, for his daughter's birthday, in exchange for a pumpkin carve. I know what you are thinking, but this guy is crazy talented. He does what we do on styrofoam pumpkins!

Definitely check out his site www.ThePumpkinGeek.com

This 600 pixel wide view is about 1 inch taller and 1 inch wide than the drawing.

This is Tyrone Wells, singer-songwriter. My son Andrew Belle is on a 35 city tour with him now. We got to see 2 shows this weekend while they are coming through Chicago! He's an awesome artist!

Check him out at www.TyroneWells.com

The reference photo is from his most recent cd, and is blurred around the edges of his head, ears, etc. This is a technique I'm still teaching myself, so hopefully I pulled it off somewhat?
