I recently did a series of portraits for a book published in the UK called "On the Snap" by Brian Case. Case is a British novelist, journalist and raconteur. The book is a collection of conversations he's had over the years with personanlities from the world of jazz, film and crime fiction.
Brian Case is shown here on the left. Below are most of the other drawings from the book.
