Clay on Regis and Kelly

GMA Clay

I think this is number six in the series of portraits. The funny thing is that doing these portraits is so relaxing that it even inspired me to go back to my bridge series. This one was a screencap from GMA. I am noticing that the hair is so different in each portrait. Cool.

Congratulations, Clay!

From the UNCC site:

Singer Clay Aiken received the Outstanding Young Alumnus Award. While he is famous around the world as the first runner-up in “American Idol,” Aiken also has used his degree in special education from UNC Charlotte. He graduated with a B.A in special education in 2003.

He founded the Bubel-Aiken Foundation, which supports the integration of children with disabilities into the life environment of their non-disabled peers through summer camps and other initiatives.

Aiken also served as an Ambassador to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, UNICEF National Ambassador of education. In September, President Bush appointed Aiken to serve on the President’s Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities.

Congratulations, Clay!

This was drawn in charcoal, soft first then hard.

David Foster Gala Clay

I drew this from a picture taken by Galrow at the David Foster Gala. I loved the look of it. I created this one with hard charcoal pencils over soft charcoal. These drawings of Clay are part of my portfolio for my Painter class. I sure am enjoying them. Thank you for all the wonderful and encouraging words.
