A short Bio of Michael Jacson with a portrait of the famous man

Portrait of Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson born Michael Joseph Jackson born in 1958, one of eight children, the King of pop, and there is no denying that, a man who generations of people have grown up with,
The little boy with the great voice and fabulous footwork like the robot and the moonwalk,
We first glanced this man as a boy in the mid 60s with four of his brothers the Jackson 5, and he began his solo career in 1971, and by the early 80s he was one of the best well know faces in the music scene, blasting out songs like Beat it, Billie Jean and Thriller, he could fill any venue you could think of and often he did, and it was a shame his life came to an untimely end aged 50 in 2009

Portrait

I had to pay my respects by drawing his portrait, this drawing was done in graphite pencil, which I do 90% of my drawings in, this particular drawing took me around six hours to do, it is one of the most immediately recognisable poses I have portrayed,
I hope you all like it as it is one of my favourites.

It is fantastic. It's the first thing I noticed, and I wondered where you'd found such a wonderful piece even before I started reading. Nice work.
