I know this has been done before (and probably better ) but I have always wanted to have a go at this portrait - so on a wet windy typhoon swept Monday in Shanghai I finally got around to drawing it.
A simple A4 Bristol Board sketch which did not take long at all - about 8 hours in total, all the usual friends joined in - HB,4B and 8B pencils, eraser or blenders.
The original photograph was taken by the brilliant photographer Gilles-Marie Zimmerman www.gmzimmermann.com/
