JLS stands for ‘Jack the Lad Swing’, and these four lads made it big after performances on The X Factor in 2008.
Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold, Oritse Williams and JB Gill, announced their farewell tour in 2013, to the huge disappointment of their fans.
This portrait was drawn with Prismacolour and Staedtler Ergosoft coloured pencils on Bristol Board extra smooth surface, A3 size.

I’m a self-taught artist from the North of England and I like to inject a bit of humour wherever possible, whether it’s in my writing (see my poems), or my artwork.
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave comments on any pieces you like.

    Superb portraits Margaret !!!
    You should send a copy to the boys, they’d be delighted !

  • You think so George? Maybe if I was a young fan that would be ok, but at 3 score years and two months they might class me as plain weird. Thanks for the lovely comment.

    Three sets of teeth Margaret in the same drawing, what an exercise in self-discipline from an artist’s point of view! Although I am not familiar with the lads, your rendition has excellently brought them and their stories to life, and I can imagine hordes of faithful devotees of the group lining up to buy your t-shirts when they have their obligatory reunion concert. Top job with the pencils and the grey matter.

  • Best not to view large Gary, or all those nice compliments may turn into negatives. I only got through to the end by changing my pencil sharpener (thanks to your sound advice), and the dependence on my spectacles, which are never far away from my face these days. And that reunion concert can’t come soon enough. Thanks for the smashing comment on this horrid grey, wet morning.
