An artist that started as a journalists, but then swapped the news, for the world of pop and art.
The following, is a quote from artist Rik Reimert: "Nailing the right expression in a portrait is really satisfying and I never get bored with it."  You can definitely see it in his drawings, there is not one flat expression in the mix of portraits below.  The technique he adopts to create his portraits, is called Cross Hatching and I think that the words explain what it's all about.  Most of his work, has always been done in black ink giving that wonderfully stylish black and white finish.  More recently, he has started introducing color, in the way of watercolor paints and colored inks.  As you can see from the post, I have gone for the classics, with many celebrities to showcase Reimert's talent.
