Famous People

After the ‘First Face’, I thought it would be best to try and draw famous people, that way, when I was done I could gauge whether or not I had succeeded based on if others knew who the famous person was. I also selected these particular faces for specific reasons: Meryl Streep’s nose, Magic Johnson’s smile (..and because he was my high school crush, oh yeah!), and Taylor Swift, well, just because  she’s Taylor, and i needed to try drawing a young person. Their unique features were a fun challenge. After only a few months into drawing at this point, I think there was some level of success.



  1. Jan, as someone who would love to be able to paint, yet realistically doesn’t have an artistic bone in my body, I love to see your pictures. I will let you be my artist alter-ego. Amazing to think you have not put image and canvass together until now. That should give us all hope and a sense of “what else is there in us that has yet to be tapped.”
    Thanks for sharing your gift with us.

    1. Thank you Annie! It is both fulfilling and therapeutic; a special blessing. Thank you for your kind words, and yes, I will gladly be your artist alter-ego. 🙂
