Celebz

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I noticed I haven't done any portraits in quite a while so last night I had the urge to draw some celebrities I found interesting. For me, when doing portraits, the feeling of exultation or of utter despair is determined solely on whether or not a likeness is achieved. And having not practiced in months, I had a bit of difficulty. Nonetheless, these were still really fun to do. I definitely plan on doing more of these, and I've got a small list of names I'd like to draw.

Stanley Kubrick

Yoni Wolf

Tilda Swinton

Terry Richardson

Spike Jonze

These are fantastic Jeremy. I really enjoy looking at them. Really interesting slight stylization with a great likeness. :]

I think the one of SWINTON is my favorite, because it manages to look both exactly like her and exactly like one of the more androgynous people you draw regularly.

Shoki said...

These are really great! thanks for showing.

Craig said...

The one of Tilda Swinton is UH MAZE ING. seriously, essence captured.

Kali Ciesemier said...

I have to agree. SWINTON for the win! Fantastic, jeremy. (also, she's a really interesting person...SWINTON has 2 men in her life, both painters, and has been in a relationship with both with each other's blessing for 4 years. She has twins with one??)

Hey Jeremy,

Your art is super!
I'm a new blogger here so i will drop by often to send a note.
I think it's amazing how you work with acrylics so smooth. I really have to try that...because i always use oilpaint..

Have a nice 2010!

I just discovered your work through 'lines and colors', luckily enough. I admire not only your technique but also the deeply intriguing atmosphere of your works.

Hey, I really love your style.

Tilda Swinton has a mistic and a slighty spooky phisical feature that many Hollywood's actors dont have, I m afraid that it gives her some king of outstanding personality and a wierd beauty that weren't cauhgt up in this drawing, but anyway, you got the talent.

Just jaw dropping amazing work!

Heh, I'm a little late on the commenting here, but I gotta say:

That Kubrick drawing makes me think of Sean Murray every. single. time.
