Actor Portraits for Backstage Magazine

I’ve been drawing portraits of actors for Backstage Magazine every week since March. I’ve drawn over 40 portraits of actors like Jere Burns (great face), Holly Hunter, Ernie Hudson, Jon Voight, Ciaran Hinds and Sela Ward. I don’t often draw celebrities. I draw a lot of chefs and business people, so it’s nice to draw some famous faces once a week. Here is a selection of some of the portraits from this year.

Top Chefs – Honolulu Magazine

Hawaiian Chefs

Aloha! These happy chefs were drawn for the fantastic Honolulu Magazine. The restaurant guide appeared in my mailbox the other day – too bad all these restaurants are over 5,000 miles away, the food looks and sounds amazing!

It was great to get the opportunity to work with Honolulu Magazine. It’s a beautiful magazine and they use a good amount of illustration which is always a good thing. I also got to work with an incredibly fun and energetic art director who used Hawaiian phrases to begin and end emails. You just can’t go wrong with a combination of all those things.

I have a lot of new work up on my Portrait page on my website, as well as the other portfolio sections. Take a look!

Matthew Jocelyn – Toronto Life

Matthew Jocelyn of Canadian Stage

Matthew Jocelyn is the director of Canadian Stage, a theatre company in Toronto. He took the position in 2010 and has had a rocky start trying to fill the seats and put on appealing shows.

Tragedy theater masks float around and follow him wherever he goes. Okay, that’s not true, but it makes for a good illustration.

This piece is in the current issue of Toronto Life. 

Restaurant Awards – Vancouver Magazine

Vancouver Magazine

These guys were drawn for Vancouver Magazine‘s Restaurant Awards issue. The black lines were drawn in ink on super smooth Bristol paper, the grey tones were drawn on a separate layer of vellum and the two layers were pieced together in Photoshop.  More portraits to come soon!
