These are 4 portraits I drew for our final project in university. I also made an animation, but that still needs work. My personal research project was on Italian criminal organizations, and the portraits represent 4 major bosses from the three different mafias of southern Italy. I made other portraits, but these 4 were the best ones.
I exhibited them at our end of year exhibition, 'Keepsake', that ran through June at Camberwell College of Arts.
