Natalie Portman portrait

A wordless mini biography

I used to be afraid of (drawing) people, but lately I’ve started to find interest in sketching portraits.
Something fascinating happens when I observe someones’ face so closely. The expression, the look in the eyes, hidden thoughts and feelings. Like a wordless mini biography, without dates or facts, every curve tells the story directly.

Illustrations in this post take inspiration from A Tale of Love and Darkness by Amos Oz.
Oz said he wanted to grow up to be a book. If your desire is to grow up and be a painting I’m here for you.
