Nelson Mandela (Face 128)
This blog has not been set up to portray a balanced picture of all of the beautiful inhabitants of this planet. I have been drawing portraits of people who take the time to send me a photograph of themselves and have, with a few exceptions, been working through them in the order that they arrive in my inbox. Your observation about the relative lack of diversity in the people who have sent in photographs so far is a valid if rather redundant one.
Your suggestion that I am for some reason filtering out all the non Caucasian faces is something that I find pretty hurtful.
Glad you like the blog.
