Peter Furler of the Newsboys by khinson Peter Furler of the Newsboys by khinson
This is Peter Furler, the former lead singer for the Newsboys. If youíve never heard their music, you should definitely give them a try.

I was working on another Golden Era Hollywood drawing and just needed a break. I actually finished this drawing within 8 days, which is fast for me! Total drawing time was approximately 22 hours. It is on 9 x 12 Bristol board using a mechanical pencil, 2H through 6B. As always, the original is lighter than the scan. I just canít make the background that black, so I let the scanner help me out!

Please donít be too harsh about my skin shading. At this point in my life, this is the best I can do. The reference had a lot of freckles or age spots that I didnít even try to include for fear Iíd make him look like Yoda! It isnít unusual for me to nickname my drawings while Iím working on them. However, my husband actually nicknamed this one for me. Heíd tell me to go upstairs and draw some on Baldylocks!

So am I!! The Newsboys just don't exist without him, though. Or without Phil Joel.

Thank you! I appreciate the favorite too. He's one of my favorite singers and I'm really trying to get 100 favorites for this drawing and you're number 99! Woo hoo! I'm drawing a collage of him now. You should give his music a try if you have never heard him.

I really love these guys! We've listened to them on road trips going through some of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand to our holiday home and every time I listen to those albums again it brings back those great memories :) Beautiful drawing and an honour to have it in #dAportraiteures
