Frederick, Prince of Wales by suburbanbeatnik Frederick, Prince of Wales by suburbanbeatnik
Frederick, the eldest son of George II, was a dapper prankster also known as "The People's Prince," because he was wildly popular with commoners. He would take his dog out on walks unaccompanied, and chat and joke with anyone he happened to run into. He was friends with Alexander Pope, Farinelli, Flora MacDonald and the founders of the "naughty Hellfire club" (to quote Blackadder), and patronized all kinds of artists, poets and writers. For a Hanoverian, he was pretty cool.

The sketch on the right is particularly good.
Oh! I didn't know anything about this prince. Thank you for introducing me his story!

Fred (nicknamed Griff for "Griffin," interestingly enough) was a very cool guy. Too bad he's not better known... But hopefully my upcoming project will change all of that! :)

You portray these characters so well. The faces look so alive, and I love the sketchiness.
