    These series are great fun, Michael. You know I love your style but I saw a slightly different fashioning with the ‘Red pen drawing of Face.’

    I’m really attracted to the the loose pen rendering of the eyes and minimalizing of the other features. It’s one of those ‘less says more’ sort of statements. I have one that I did like that (pen and ink) when I was college. It is one of the few things that I kept and framed.

    Hi Vikki, Thanks again for commenting! These are like you mentioned, great fun! Just playing around. Interesting that the less-is-more style was pervasive in my college work too. Now a days I don’t feel grounded in any particular style, so I just keep jumping around. Messy, but something’s developing…

    Just wanna say that I think your style is awesome, and you have such a range of tecniques and I don’t ever get a sense of ‘deja-vu’ when looking at any of your pieces.

    I’m thinking of using you as the artist for my GCSE portraits project, but I’m undecided at the moment.

    I wanted to do a manga/anime style piece, but apparently it’s “not art” and the examiners don’t count it as a real portrait … which I suppose it’s not.

    Eitherways, keep up the great work!

    Hi Vikki,
    Thanks for your comment, I appreciate your interest in my work.

    I think manga/anime is art. Many people do. Some people, such as your examiner, do not. I’m hearing that you do not think it is art either. Perhaps it depends upon one’s definition of “art”.

    Good luck with your artistic pursuits! 😉

    Hey I just wanted to say that all of your faces are really cool. And I was just wondering if I could use the red striped face to print on a t-shirt. only one tee-shirt just for myself. I’m not going to be selling it or anything. And I think that is it really interesting and thought provoking. The expression is so interesting. haha 🙂 I really need to work on drawing faces from memory. Yours are all really good and unique. I love unique art.

    Thank you Siobhan!
    I’m happy to know my style has helped you try new methods for creating art. We all learn from each other, and I think it’s so cool that we have the internet to explore art around the world and expand our knowledge of what’s possible.

    If you post your artwork online, feel free to send a link via email or in a comment. And good luck with your artistic pursuits!

    Hi! I am just about start a project and I was sketching stuff out and it wouldn’t come out like what was in my head. So I go on my iPhone and find your art and this is exactly what was in my head. I’m really My favorite is the last blue painting. amazing. I wouldn’t even know how to go about doing something like that though. I dont get how you control watercolor so well so that it actually makes a face without running everywhere and mixing and stuff. great job. Wish I could do something like it one day.
