Some prototypical sketches for (i) a portrait of John Humphreys in which I managed to make him look like a cross between Gollum and Yes, Minister actor Derek Fowlds, and (ii) a group portrait of electronic music pioneeers Kraftwerk where I managed to succeed in drawing people who look nothing like any of the members of Kraftwerk. There were subsequent attempts at the latter and a finished piece which is much better, I promise you, may appear here shortly.
