Portrait of Bruce Willis by Jan Szymczuk

Currently unavailable for purchase

Drawn on A4 cartridge paper using a selection of Derwent graphite pencils



I`m really a self taught artist. A Geordie lad, hailing from a small mining village called Pegswood in Northumberland, originally, from Polish parents. I now live in Stannington, Northumberland, where I’m enjoying all that retirement has to offer.

I am available for commissions, including portraiture, animals and also for one off caricatures, for hire to wedding receptions, parties, local schools, fun fairs and fetes etc.

    Very very nice pencil work. Your pencil strokes are quite clean and precise. Like this very much.

    Thanks, I suppose I owe that to being the senior Police Artist at New Scotland Yard for the past 30 years, can’t wait to retire in 8-10 weeks!

    Thanks for the chance on entering, I’ve never come in the top 10 of anything, so it was a great surprise, and congrats to the eventually winner. Sorry for not getting back sooner, I’m still finding my way around this site, replies and forums.
