Radiohead by SleepyTea Radiohead by SleepyTea
Well this was obviously inspired by the wonderful band, Radiohead.
I was listening to Radiohead and suddenly thought, "what would a guy with a radio for a head look like?"
And like the (not so) curious monster I am, I drew it.
I've always imagined this guy to be either a banker or politician. Might even be Nick Clegg, although the tie is the wrong colour.

Took me about 45 minutes.
Used red and black biro for sketch and inking, and watercolour for the rest.
