'Leonard Cohen' illustration

I did this illustration of Leonard Cohen back in January and it's clearly not the best portrait of the series but I thought I'd post it anyway. The position of his mouth and shape of his head are well wrong - I daren't show my mum this one - she'll have a field day.

I've always enjoyed his music and without especially realising it I've managed to pick up a lot of his records in charity shops over the years but watching 'McCabe and Mrs Miller' was the 'clicking' point for me. 'The Stranger Song' is so good.

"I'm an old scholar, better-looking now than when I was young. That's what sitting on your ass does to your face." Leonard Cohen.
