So all my life I’ve been a massive Only Fools and Horses fan and after visiting the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition in town today and then looking at some Andrew Gormley sculptures as well as attending the Chinese New Year celebrations, I thought I’d see if I could draw the star of Only Fools, Del Boy himself, David Jason to commemorate his 79th birthday….so here it is:
So I’ve just finished watching the Southampton vs. Derby game on TV and…as usual, I get let down as Saints lost…I try not to get too disappointed these days though as I’m kinda used to it and try not to invest too much emotion in it as it only gives me a headache.
I was a season ticket holder for about a decade though and, in my youth, when in hospital, was visited by Matt Le Tissier, Tim Flowers and Alan Shearer…well, I was virtually asleep at the time and they queried if they should bother waking me up…..of course they should and they did and I’ll treasure that memory but obviously as time goes on I’ve gotten other interests but always keep an eye out for saints.
Anyhow, I suppose that’s a good way to include a portrait drawing I did a while ago of one Matthew Le Tissier (or Le God as he was known in these parts)…so here you are, I hope I’ve done him justice:
Okay, granted, he’s a fair bit younger in my drawing than he is now but hey? A portrait is just a snapshot of any given time.
