Aussie painter Bill Leak has a series about painting dead famous Australians. This week, he did Bon Scott. You can see the ABC website about the series here, and I’ve uploaded the video (26min, 90mb) here. Enjoy!

    AND THE “FAN SAID…”WELL THATS BON”…HAHAHA

    THIS PORTRAIT WOULD BE GREAT AT SCARING LITTLE KIDS…

  • There’s a devious yet tounge in cheek look in his eyes. Like if the eyes is portraying the lyrics he wrote for the band. Allways filled
    with humour and clever innuendo. It’s also showing his then latest tattoo, the one on his stomach. He’s supposedly got it not very long before he passed away.

    Wonderful painting.
