Dylan Sketch

People have contacted me about buying original drawings, and usually pieces that I post are commissions or already purchased by private collectors. I decided to offer to sell 7 original drawings to my fans before they are sold privately.  I will post one drawing each day for the next 7 days, it will be a first come, first serve basis. Please inquiry at vin@vinganapathy.com Thanks!

Bob Dylan was the first celebrity portrait I tried to draw without any reference photos. When I started out, I preferred taking my own photos for references and never understood the appeal of drawing celebrity photos, especially photorealistic drawings of someone else’s photos.

I started realizing Illustrators I looked up to, used references, but drew it in a way to really make it theirs. I like pieces that look "like" the subject, but aren't a direct duplicate of a photograph. This Dylan piece is the start of this way of thinking.
