This is an homage to Madvlad, one of the most original artists on Redbubble.
I got out of my comfort zone to do a portrait for a change.
This is a labour of love, inasmuch as it is a tribute to my good friend Walt Evans, one of the most fascinating artists on Redbubble. I’ve known Walt since before we both joined Redbubble.
I used a selection of photos Walt gave me of himself and his art. I have his permission to do this portrait too, so no copyright has been breached.
The background is based on some of Walt’s designs with a lot of my own ideas thrown in for good measure.
I used coloured pencils and fineliner pens.
Here is a glimpse into the wonderful world of Madvlad:
And here is a link to his portfolio.
