George Formby

The first in a series of portraits of 20th Century British Music-Hall Comedians & Ukelele Players. I don't like to ink directly on top of graphite sketches (the paper can't sustain all that erasing), but my blueline tracing was losing a lot of the nuance and verging on caricature. And Formby was a pretty unique-looking fellow in his own right, no exaggeration required.
