Gorgeous George.

January 19, 2010

Gorgeous by name and nature, fingers like zucchini’s, smile like the finned creatures he sells and a penchant for the thin-lady cigarette’s he fleece’s from the Vietnamese and then hands out to his favourite’s. It takes between 2 and 3 meetings before you can fully understand his particular strain of english; well worth it for the pearls that flow forth.This is a portrait i made for him from ink and watercolour and follows is what happened shortly thereafter.

  1. Hello fellow blogger! What a great character he seems. Is that at the wholesale fish market? Tell us more!

    • George is indeed from the Footscray wholesale fish market, and Cyprus. Completely unique from anybody I have ever met; his only common trait with the other many characters who populate that place.
