Celebrity Pencil Portraits - John Lennon

This year my focus includes creating quite a few more celebrity portraits. Each one is created by searching for a good quality image of the person I’d like to draw first. Sometimes it’s not easy to find a good quality image that shows me all the details of the face. They reflect what is going on in my life to a certain degree as well. This one of John Lennon is a well known image of him, but the message of peace is what I was reflecting on as I created it.

He is remembered with love and fondness for his music and his message of peace that he was trying to communicate to the world.
