Twenty-something, pre-enigmatic Rik.
I've just started painting this on canvas today... it looks terrible but it's still early days. If it turns out as good as the original or better, then I'll upload the finished piece including a photographic walkthrough.
Derren Brown's artwork [link]
is a huge influence. He's still expecting one from me after meeting him last year and mentioning the fact. He'll get it emailed (or Twittered) to him soon enough, but I'll still never be as good as him. xD
It's been two years since the Bill Bailey one was posted...not heard back. He's a busy man, I guess!
And as for Rik, well, I'm keeping this. My walls need filling and lightening up big time!
