You talkin' to me? by Gary Fernandez

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Another in my celebrity portraits this time featuring actor Robert De Niro in the days of his iconic film Taxi Driver.

Drawn in a mix of Faber Castell and Prisma coloured pencils on a 30×40cm 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.

    Karen’s so right. Your leather clothing seems to jump right off the page it’s so real. De Niro sort of lost his appeal with me when he started doing comedy, but this is a fabulous portrait Gary. Well done.

  • Thanks Margaret, your and absolute gem. I tend to agree in that I’m not a real fan of his comedy either but his early tough guy roles secured his place in my all time favourites. In fact he almost inspired me to become a taxi driver till I realised I like sleeping much more than driving!
