I wanted to draw a portrait of Michael Jackson but hesitated so much on which picture to draw that I decided to use both my favorite ones.
It's a way to picture different steps of his career: he got famous as a kid and later became the "King of Pop". As for the figure in the middle of the artwork: he was a "bête de scène" as we say in French (sorry, I couldn't find the English translation) and he died while getting ready for a new tour.
Now, for the details:
Graphite on Arches watercolor hot pressed paper
size of the artwork: 22x32 cm
size of paper: 26x36 cm
time to draw: over 50 hoursReference pictures found on various free wallpapers websites.
