I was in the middle of doing a picture of Alice’s Cheshire Cat when I felt the urge to create this Van Gogh portrait.

In a whimsical mood I decided to show him as he would look if he were built from bricks. I suppose there is symbolism there, because his stature in the art world is as solid as if he’d been built from bricks :)

I used coloured pencils.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Well, Dave, my friend…. this is fabulous!!! what a unique take on the artist… I think you need to get some bricks and make this for real…. and since it’s my idea, i guess you should give me credit…. hugs, my friend…

  • Thanks. Just send me the bricks by airmail – shouldn’t cost you much :)

    Nicely done Dave. You said it—we love brick!!

  • Thanks. I grew up in a red brick house surrounded by dozens of other red brick houses; I guess bricks are firmly implanted in my psyche :)
