Steve Lilly's Comedy Classics
Award-winning West Mids artist Steve Lilly returns with another collection of finely delineated portraits from the golden age of TV and film comedy, including Dad's Army, Tony Hancock, Laurel and Hardy, Ken Dodd, Carry On, and The Two Ronnies - many of whom have previously graced the Hippodrome's stage.
Says Steve: "I really strive to capture the expressions and mannerisms that are so characteristic of the people I am trying to portray. I'm not just looking for a likeness but an essence unique to each character that will bring them to life on the paper. I think I owe these fantastic actors something for all the fun and laughter they have brought to me over the years."
