Celebrity Pencil Portraits - Roger Hodgson

Roger Hodgson. The widely recognizable voice behind Supertramp.

Leading them to fame with his songs such as "Dreamer", "Take The Long Way Home", "School", "Breakfast in America" and "Give a Little Bit" just to name a few, Roger Hodgson now travels worldwide performing his music in his solo shows.

Each year, he visits Casino Rama in Orillia, ON to perform one of his memorable shows. I had the unique opportunity to present this portrait to him after one of his shows. I was inspired to draw his portrait through a series of coincidental events that eventually led to the creation of this portrait and the presentation of it personally to him. It took me 50 hours to complete and drew it in 4 days.

He is a mild mannered, extremely sweet soul. His passion and soul is evident through the love that emanates from him as you experience one of his live shows. Every note and pitch of each song is perfect...even those high ones! If you are a fan of Supertramp's music, you are sure to be a fan of Roger Hodgson.

I was so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet him! I presented him with this portrait pictured above as a gift. He kindly signed a fine art print created from the original, which is now framed and hanging proudly in my home.
