This incredible artist uses nothing but a pen

Vince Low’s portraits of famous people makes your idle doodling look pathetic.

Neil Churchill November 23, 2014

Many of us are guilty of doodling in our moments of downtime, scribbling something vague on a scrap of paper as our mind wonders away from the present.

But if you were as good with a biro as Vince Low, then you'd probably quit your job right now and turn it into a career. Low is an an artist from Kuala Lumpur who has established himself with his incredible drawings of famous faces, using nothing but a pen. Here at EDGAR, we're so impressed with his talent that we featured his portrait of Morgan Freeman on the front cover of our November issue. 

Low began his Faces project to raise awareness of famous people with dyslexia, to show that it didn't stop them from achieving success in their fields. He started with Pablo Picasso, Albert Einstein and John Lennon. The project had a special meaning to Low as he himself is dyslexic.

Since then he has continued to draw recognisable faces in his unique style, including Jonny Depp, Will Smith, Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan.
