Lily Allen

illustration : pencil on paper, size 30 x 30 cm / 12 x 12 inches


Some of the pictures I keep to use for a portrait, lay around for ages. So has the picture of Lily Allen that I used as a reference for this illustration. Lily’s looks change frequently and her hair has seen many colours. I personally like her best with this dark hair and especially the grungy, even a bit emo, look that she was rocking a few years ago, suits her very well. The portrait even turned out a bit more emo than I actually intended, but I think its atmosphere is right.  Don’t you think?

Meschiya Lake

pencil on paper, size 30 x 30 cm / 12 x 12 inches


It’s always more fun to draw a portrait of a person who inspires you, especially when she has a bit of an attitude and immaculate style. Meschiya Lake, a singer from New Oleans who recently moved to Europe, ticks all the boxes.


I absolutely love her music what can best be described as a melting pot of New Orleans jazz, swing, ragtime, big band and dixieland, what more could we wish for? Her shows are always great because Meschiya’s a very talented singer, dancer and performer, and of course the musicians she plays with are very talented too. And on top of that, not only Meschiya dances all night long, sometimes even accompanied by her (dance)partner, but also her audience knows how to rock&roll.

Morrie&Me Jean Seberg

Jean Seberg

pencil on paper, size 30 x 30 cm / 12 x 12 inches


Jean Seberg was an American actress in the ’50s who unfortunately got more famous
for the tragedies surrounding her personal life than for her big screen performances.


I always loved her style and found this quite a fascinating picture of her.
On first look she seems innocent, but her facial expression is a bit hard to read
and gives her an unpredictable look. Which makes it a very interesting portrait.

Morrie&Me Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong’o

pencil on paper, size A3


When I found this picture of the very talented actress and director Lupita Nyong’o in a magazine,
I just to make a drawing of it. Not only because she’s very beautiful
but also ’cause I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into the precious lace top by Erdem she’s wearing.

Morrie&Me Selfportrait

Self Portrait #3

pencil on paper, 12x12cm / 5x5inches

Although this self-portrait (12×12 cm/5×5 inches) isn’t perfect, something funny is going on with my eyes,
I’m still quite happy with how it turned out and it was a good try out for sketching a portrait in a smaller size.

Self Portrait #2

pencil on paper, size A3


And another self portrait, drawn in the same period as the previous portrait.
Even though my hair might be a bit longer now and I probably lost a couple of pounds,
it still looks like me.
