I’m always in awe of people that can do things that I simply cannot, even more so when they do it with ease style and panache, this piece is just that. The picture is of Scroobiuspip a superb lyricist and performer, his music and spoken word is both powerful and humble, witty and dark and I suggest you youtube him. Of course Mr Pip has an epic beard that he is most proud of and rightly so, he has said “its how a man’s face is supposed to look” who can disagree with that. The picture itself is the creation of Joe Simpson and I completely forgive you if if you assume he is a photographer with skill, but think again for you be thinking wrong! Its a painting, yes a painting that is so staggeringly good I find myself constantly scrutinizing it as I find it hard to believe, I think its one of the best from his gallery but do go and have a look at his amazing work.
