Not that I’m necessarily a huge fan of the man... this was more an experiment in applying a drawing look I’ve been working on to someone chosen at random. Mister Fry is pretty good to draw though. This was drawn from You Tube clips, paused here and there where I thought he looked interesting. I enlarged his eyes a bit, shrunk his mouth slightly and bent his nose a little bit more. I find if you don’t do this sort of thing, make these small exaggerations, it just ends up looking like a drawing of a photo. It goes flat somehow, even though the photo is a literal representation of that person. It ends up looking slightly less like the person than if you had sat and drawn them. If you drew them, alive and breathing in front of you, part of your brain will definitely be thinking: ‘My god look at the size of his eyes, look at his nose’, and you will see that response in the end drawing. Photos don’t always pick up this sort of thing. You have to dig a bit deeper. Moving film circumvents the problem a bit (if wanting to draw Stephen Fry happens to be your problem).

"Consider the impasse of a one-God universe.
He is all-knowing and all-powerful. He can't go anywhere since He is already everywhere.
He can't do anything since the act of doing presupposes opposition.
His universe is irrevocably thermodynamic having no friction by definition.
So, He has to create friction: War, Fear, Sickness, Death.... To keep his dying show on the road." —William Burroughs
