Last year that charity Reprieve asked me to donate another work to their annual fundraising gala dinner and auction. I decided to donate the opportunity to have your portrait done by me, with black electrical tape on glass.

The first portrait was the one posted below, bought by Olivia Colman, the one above was the second, and is of novelist Nick Harkaway.

Nick’s father is John Le Carré, who wrote Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and The Night Manager. The reason I mention this is that coincidentally Olivia recently won a Golden Globe for her role in The Night Manager. It’s a small world.

I am very happy to have been able to raise £6100 for the charity on the night.

Recently I donated the opportunity to have a tape portrait of yourself to the Reprieve charity auction at the Wallace Collection.  Here is some progress shots of one of the winning bidders, actress (and all-round hero) Olivia Colman.

The other artist to donate work to this auction was Anthony Gormley.

I was ecstatic to have raised £6100 for the charity that night, and £9100 in total for charity during the months October and November.
