Friday's Famous Face is an original art project by Ronnie which features famous people or characters and what they might be doing during the covid19 pandemic.
Digital artwork by Ronnie McInnes No.15 - Billy Connolly © 2020.
Each artwork has been illustrated digitally by hand on a PC using a graphics tablet. I imagined realistic situations for the people / characters and portrayed them how I think they might have behaved at this time. I sometimes created a parody of existing images to achieve this.

The last ever Friday's Famous Face is of the multi-talented (and fellow Scot) Billy Connolly as he had been suggested many times during the 14 weeks that the project ran for.

That week I knew I wanted to incorporate PPE to the mix. But once I had decided to work on Billy Connolly I thought back to what was likely the first time I saw him on telly. It was a clip of him on Parky, saying he was doing a gig once where the audience made him feel "as welcome as a fart in a spacesuit". So, I decided his PPE would be a spacesuit. I imagine Billy would pull a stunt like this.

I put him in his famous banana boots and gave him a banjo in a case to carry as a reference to his musicianship.
