marker pens in my sketchbook of secrets, A4 size.
Another of my imaginary friends: this one is my wild card. The Fool, the Joker, the unpredictable, reckless force within me (and probably all of us!) He doesn’t have an actual name, but he has enough youthful arrogance & pure charm to call himself a prince! This guy takes nothing seriously. He appears as an erratic, disheveled youth, crown perched hurriedly on his head, cigarette dangling precariously from his lips..
I thought & thought about that cigarette, & decided in the end to include it. It’s such a reckless act of thoughtless self destruction, i thought it was fitting for a character like this!
As for the reference model, i have no idea who he is! A few years ago, some kid uploaded a picture on twitter, & there in the crowd was some beautiful young buck who perfectly represented my character! (At least in that photo he did!) So if you happen to know him, please tell him I said congratulations on finally making it into my sketchbook, & thanx for the inspiration! And dude: please don’t smoke anymore!
