Few of my old (80s) illustrations/portraits for Le Figaro Magazine

Victor Hugo
Louis-Antoine Prat

Francois Chalais 

Maurice Ravel

Pierre Mazares 
Old Illustrations commissioned by the Figaro Magazine in the 80s..Different mediums, Gouache, pencil, acrylics..My favorite is the Chalais one, not because I like the character (far from it) but because it was my first attempt at drawing on textured and tainted paper..I love this effect.
