Alan Moore by BrianAW Alan Moore by BrianAW
This was done to accompany an article on Alan Moore in the Sunday Times Magazine when he turned 50. I was told he didn't want his picture taken on the day he was interviewed, and said "just get somebody to draw something; and this is the result:)

Because I admire him as a writer ( and stupidly trying to ape his style got me my first writing jobs on 2000AD) I wanted to do the subject justice and spent far to long trying to draw all the characters in an approximation of the style of the original artist - even Maxwell the cat, who can just be seen at the top of the pyramid.

He is an amazing writer. A complete god in every respect. It's like he knows how to write in a way that syncs up with whatever artist he's working with. And on on top of that, his beard is epic.

Remember kids Alan Moore and his Beard are GOD!

Great picture by the way. I ike how you used multiple styles , especially the realistic one for Moore himself.

I love it. And I think you did a great job of approximating the various styles while managing to keep the picture looking consistant.

Is the shadowed figure right below
superman, Dr William Wilthey Gull
from "From Hell"? That book was so
messed up and great. People say it
wasn't historically correct but that's
probably the closest you'll ever get
psychologically--and frankly I'm don't
I WANT to get any closer.

Yep, that's him.
And you're right - you know what they say about staring into the abyss...:)
