Sixty Six: Laurie Penny

This morning, I was thinking about how lucky I was to know the most extraordinary people: writers and artists and porn stars and firebrand journalists and rockstars. And I thought that maybe I should draw them.

So I’m going to try, when not murdering myself on other things, I’m going to try to draw sixty six of them.

Here’s the first. Laurie Penny. UK Journalist and badass.

    I simply adore this project, know several of these lovely people and have been truly enjoying this. Thank you for sharing all of it as you do.

    *Hope one day to make the cut and become a subject of a work of art for an artist like you! Ha! In the meantime, it’s back out to the studio for me.
