Portrait competition entries
Posted 8 months ago and submitted by Simon Myers | Share link: http://illo.cc/80468


One of my hobbies is capturing likenesses, I love drawing and painting faces.

This year I decided to enter two drawing competitions, the Coventry University Drawing Competition (where I lecture part time) and the Sky Portrait Artist of the year.

To enter the Sky Portrait Artist of the year you had to create a self-portrait (which I’ll admit was like pulling teeth), and accompany it with another portrait. The “other” portrait was one I had created recently in watercolour and pencil crayon of my girlfriend, specifically for the Coventry competition.

Unfortunately I didn’t get into the Sky Portrait Artist of the year. But I did make the second round of the Coventry University Drawing Competition and the piece will be exhibited in two separate Coventry galleries.

Testimonial
Simon is a truly talented graphic designer and illustrator who very professionally, patiently and good-humoredly worked with me on my 'Organize Me!' logo and illustration. He was always very prompt at responding and following-up, something which is very important to me. I cannot recommend Simon highly enough if you want an one-of-a-kind illustration everybody will love!
