Drawings By A Writer

Taking famous celebrity photographs from the last century and applying a candid, perhaps juvenile, sketching ethic, Drawings By A Writer is the hillarious project of Sydneysider, Simon Friedlander.

If you’re an aspiring sketch artist, but you’re drawing itself just doesn’t cut the mustard, then look no further for inspiration. Amongst his illustrious collation of sketches are appropriations of Muhammad Ali’s famous KO, Albert Einstein’s tongue-poking pose, The Beatles walking across Abbey Road, and a rather brash interpretation of Marilyn Monroe’s attempt to keep her skirt from blowing up. I really dig the drawing of Michael Jackson flailing his ‘Blanket’ from a five story awning. It almost looks like MJ breast-feeding Freddo the frog.
