March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s portrait is of English artist Steve Huison, at a very young age. Clearly he gets some of his good humor from his father! As an adult, Steve is a man of many talents – an accomplished actor, artist, and photographer to name a few. I like how Steve builds up layers of thin pen lines in his drawings, varying their length and shape to describe angular volumes and curling hair. The surprise is that he can also use straight lines to describing curving volumes.

You can see Steve’s artwork on his flickr imagestream:

And learn more about him on his website:

Photos of Steve and other artists’ portraits of him can be seen here:…
