BIG ISSUE SERIES XIII, XIV, XV

These are three of my latest Big Issue Vendors.

I'll let the sketches and pictures do the talking!

They had fascinating stories too!

I've just arrived from the USk site. I love all of these, but my favourites are the early ones with the stories alongside the drawings & photos.

Thanks Travelling Sue, I promise to add stories to the upcoming ones as this seems to be the popular opinion.

This series of your is fascinating and some of these sketches are so beautiful. I agree with Jaycee would love to know a bit more on them as you draw them.
I guess most of us a wondering how they got there ? (homeless)

Yes Dominique- I cherish these experiences because they are worth the art so again, I'll promise to post with the ones coming up! Just a taster-- did you know the no 15 guy has always been drawn or painted since he was six? His mum has 6 portraits of him growing up and no photos....hmmmm
