Hello! This is Yokoo. For those who don't know her she is The Knitting extraordinaire. Think big, chunky, heart-warming beautiful scarves, hats & headbands, of which are currently featured in the new Nissan Car Ad! Yokoo's photographs are just as amazing as her knitted goodness, they're always quirky, whimsical, slightly amusing and inspiring. She's awesomely talented and I admire that - I don't have the patience for knitting. I can knit a rectangle and that is about it!
I bookmarked this video of her (below) a while ago, when I watched it I was instantly inspired. So I added her to my twitter & asked if I could draw a portrait of her. This was a few months ago and I've finally got around to drawing a portrait of Yokoo & more importantly I hope that I haven't insulted her...This is probably the second most realistic portrait I have ever drawn, the first was a pencil portrait of Picasso when I was 15. I hope you all like it...now I'm off to find another inspiring person to draw :-)
