Madcap Shambleton

Hey everyone, hope you're having a good weekend :)
So lately I've been majorly inspired by Noel Fielding's art; I bought his book, 'Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton', last week and I can't stop flicking through it (check out some of his paintings here, here and here) :) I'm a massive fan of the Mighty Boosh, and some of Noel's artwork is kind of featured in the series, so I figured I should check out his book, and I would really recommend it to anyone! I know his work isn't to everyone's taste, but I love the colour and energy that comes across from his paintings, and you can just tell they must have been so great to paint!
So, yesterday I had a go at doing a few portraits in a kind of Noel Fielding style; a rather random mix of people; Noel Fielding, Kate Moss, Lana Del Rey and David Bowie! The Bowie one is my personal favourite, it's the one I did last, and I think I had kind of got the hang of the style by then :)






What do you think? :)
