One my best friends, Dimitris Kanellopoulos (his brand-new site is up on the net: www.b-positive.gr), had his name-day yesterday. Since he requested not to buy for him any presents, I thought that it will be nice to make a portrait of him (the one I did for him a couple of month ago, @ velvet festival was kind of crappy), using traditional materials such as pencils (the illustration above, is the final one, scanned).
In order to give a contemporary look to the portrait, each line that was done with the 5H pencil, was drawn again with a colored-pencil (for example, the lines of the skin were re-drawn with a red-pencil, the lines of the coat were re-drawn with a green-pencil e.t.c.).
And this a picture that shows how the final present to Dimitris looks like (the frame is from IKEA :D)! Glad that you like it Mitso! :D
