Illustrating Famous Faces

The delicate, pastel-tinted illustrations of Irish artist Denise Nestor are a joy to behold. Her speciality lies in rendering celebrity portraits in light colours and hand drawn pencil, as you can clearly see on this page. Her portrait of Joaquin Phoenix for “The New Review” and of J-Dilla for “This Greedy Pig” bear testament to her unique style. Enjoy!
