Who has been your most challenging portrait to illustrate?
I usually take a bit longer on very symmetrical faces because those are usually the most difficult to abstract and retain a likeness. Falcao gave me a little bit of a problem at first for example. When I create a likeness I don’t want to depend on overt visual clues like long hair, bandana, ear-ring. The general rule is, if I isolate the face alone and that doesn’t immediately recall the subject, i have to go back to the drawing board.
