This pencil sketch of Deaf celebrity Nyle DiMarco was inspired by Al Hirschfeld’s style. I wanted to capture his animated features alongside his ASL name.
Description: At top left, a bearded and dark-haired Nyle DiMarco smiles at the viewer. He has thick eyebrows, the right one stretching off of his head into the distance (referring to his ASL name). Next to the swooping eyebrow his written ASL name swirls like the wind, above his English name. At bottom left is the artist’s signature – Adrean Clark.
