On November 20th, West Lothian entered new tier 4 restrictions due to the Covid19 pandemic. Like with Friday's Famous face, Ronnie imagined famous people (but this time with a music link) and what they might be doing during restrictions.
Digital artwork by Ronnie McInnes No.1 - Bez © 2020.
Each artwork has been illustrated digitally by hand on a PC using a graphics tablet. I imagined realistic situations for each person in the series. The restrictions were announced to last three weeks so there are three portraits in this mini-project. I used a little bit of tasteful humour for each artwork in order to make light of the pandemic and, hopefully, help brighten the day for some folks who are struggling through these times.
I asked my followers on social media to suggest who I should make art about each week. The theme for this week was famous dancers and my favourite suggestion was of Bez (perhaps best known from The Happy Mondays).
I drew influence from his dancing and clothing from the Happy Mondays video for Step On but added a little bottle of hand sanitiser and a face mask.
