Self-portrait with laurels

Jimmy Nail (2000)

One of my homework assignments in Introduction to Illustration. This piece is a charcoal rub-out, that is, the page is first covered completely with charcoal and then one "draws" by erasing the charcoal. The piece is based on the photo by David Bailey of the British musicial, Jimmy Nail. Compare with the piece with the original photo below.
