Drawing of me and my Boyfriend. 10/02/2011

So here is my latest drawing of me and Simon. I drew this for him, for his 19th birthday. I didn't really know what to buy him to be honest but i though this might be nice. It is placed in an A3 (ish) rough wood frame. To begin with, drawing the outline, I kinda felt I had drawn Si a bit goofy, however, with some change it developed better. Whether it looks like us is up to you! The only photo I had printed off of us both was one from Glastonbury Festival, I was a bit weary about the angle of the photo as Si is closer to the camera, which may have made him look like he had a big head. But I think the outcome is ok, and I am glad he is kinda the main feature. I think this took about 6 hours to do. Did an hour or two before I went to work and then carried on from 1am, after phone call with the man himself, til 5am. Of course the occasional smoke throughout. I like to work late, when it is silent and the hours fly by, I see it as a positive mission and I especially enjoy drawing for people that mean a lot to me or people I know will really appreciate the work. Love Si and although I was with him last night and today for his birthday, i hope he has a cracking meal tonight and some good drinking sessions following!


  1. Lovely drawing! Is the background (or middle ground)suggestive of the pyramid stage?
