A portrait of Dave Grohl, the Nirvana drummer who went on to form American alternative rock band The Foo Fighters. The name foo fighters was the term given to UFO’s spotted by allied pilots in World War 2.
Drawn in a mix of Faber Castell and Prisma coloured pencils on a 26×34cm cold press illustration board.

I am a self taught coloured pencil artist residing in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. My passion at the moment is human portraiture, especially celebrities, as due to their high profile nature the margin for error is minute and an intriguing challenge. I also do commissions, both human and non-human, when the occasion arises. Thank you for viewing my work and feel free to leave any comments, good or bad, and I will certainly respond.

    These hairy guys are a speciality of yours Gary, and you do them so well. By the concentration on his face I’m guessing he was playing with his plectrum. An excellent piece of work, and I must send a link to their biggest fan straight away. It will cheer up her day!

  • Thanks so much Margaret, your a sweetie, and yes a good head of hair is a mouth watering prospect for me, sort of like a jigsaw in that I like to fit every strand into its correct position, sad but true. I do hope their biggest fan likes it and brightens her day!
