Gah, I just luuuuv Richard Ashcroft!

I miss The Verve, well the old Verve that is. I think they have broken up for good this time as Richard has a new band called, The United Nations of Sound. That’s fine ‘cos that last Verve album was so-so.

I did a portrait of “Mad Richard” back in the day in art school and the biggest compliment I got was from one of the band’s main photographer, Chris Floyd. He left a message on my phone telling me he had come across one of my promo cards and was impressed by my painting of Richard. He even went on to say Richard would have approved of it!

It’s funny looking at this portrait. I know I can do a MUCH better job now than I did back in school. It’s interesting to see how one’s style and technique changes over the years.
