This Johnny Marr portrait was one of the last 3 or 4 I drew as part of the Manchester Icons series and I wanted it to include his torso, mainly so I could draw a couple of arm tattoos, but also just because I wanted a bit more variety in the collection. I've not done a Morrissey portrait as part of the series which I know will infuriate a lot of his followers, but I've never been a fan, so I thought, sod it, I'll do a Johnny Marr instead. As you can see I've given a nod to ol' grumpy guts on the t-shirt pocket - so you can't say I'm a man unwilling to compromise.
