Richard White #7 was fun to draw. I had a great time. But gee-whiz (and a good dose of golly-gosh), he really doesn’t look that impressed.
It crossed my mind the other day that I know absolutely zilch about these Richard Whites. Sometimes I get the odd detail, such as their location or job, but character wise, absolutely nothing. Obviously I’m not looking to publicise any of that stuff – just drawing them is probably intrusive enough – but this guy made me think about what they’re actually like. Especially since there’s one Richard White I’ll be looking to avoid; namely the Downside Abbey monk Richard White, who was jailed for five years in 2012 for abusing two boys back in the 1980s.
That isn’t to say that I think this particular Richard White is a dodgy character. Nope. Not at all.
Richard White is a project where I, Richard White, find and draw the Richard Whites of this world. If you’re still unsure, check out the Richard White project page.
