The joy of drawing your favourite Musician

Vikki Thorn’s voice has been a constant musical companion for about 20 years of my life. I don’t think there’s been an experience in my adult years that hasn’t had a Waifs tune soundtracking it!

I love that births, deaths, silent times and mad adventures all have this thread of Vikki’s songs/voice knitted into them.

I don’t know what the fate of this portrait is exactly, but regardless of what it does or doesn’t do, I’m so glad it’s in the hands of its subject and well received. It was the most fun portrait I’ve ever drawn.

Here is the prelim sketch, which I loved doing as well.

And some of the stages…

…and finished.
