John Byrne

My first exposure to John Byrne wasn't the much lauded TV series 'Tutti Frutti' but the 'follow up' series 'Your Cheatin' Heart'. Apart from loving the series (probably my first exposure to Tilda Swinton too) it also showed me that the writer, director was also an insanely brilliant artist.

Without doubt the best person to draw John Byrne is actually John Byrne who has painted many wonderful self portraits but as I watched an episode of 'What Do Artists Do All Day' on BBC4 highlighting John Byrne I was struck by his profile in one scene and paused it to sketch it out.
