100 Pencil Portraits - Number 47
If there’s one thing I have to say about Lou Reed, it’s that he had a very challenging face! This is definitely the hardest portrait I have drawn but I am pleased with the result - I think!
Lou Reed’s music is part of the soundtrack of my childhood and I’m still a fan. He is one of my music heroes and the intro Walk On The Wild Side still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end.
Flight of the Black Osprey - 2005 (framed)
I got this one back from the framer recently, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I figured others might want to see it. Check out my original post for the full rundown on the print as well as more photos.

Aaron pulled out all the stops for this release by The Hope Conspiracy. Produced in the four colors seen here (green, blue, red, and brown) each record features a matching screenprinted jacket and was limited to 500 copies. The jacket illustration was later released as a print (in 2007) and the lettering from it is available as a patch.
Admittedly, I would absolutely find this hilarious if I didn’t know the simple fact that the smiling woman is the Prime Minister of Denmark!
The PM and Obama have met lots of times now …
… which is probably why they’re seated next to one another. I mean, come ON, obviously it’s not some random man-stealing bimbo that was placed next to the President of the United States.
But the media loves to pin women up against each other, so for good measure here’s a picture of all three smiling together and one of the two women alone…
Please, signal boost this and stop the idiotic scenario where these two intelligent and powerful women are being reduced to petty women that care only about the attention of a man - even if it is the President of the United States.
The more you know. Now, go forth an have an AWESOME day!
