Angry portrait of Turkish president Erdogan

There’s some crazy stuff going on in the world, and my intention is not for this sketch to be a comment on a conflict that I don’t understand even a fraction of. This is Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the middle of a very agitated speech – the photo is from google images and has nothing to do with today’s event, but I think it was a good exercise in sketching a very expressive face.

I used to do this series of “Rulers of the world” where the idea is to make a portrait of each head of state in the world. I stopped before I was half-way there, but why not add another face to the list today?
