John Wayne (Pencil Sketch on 9x12 Bristol Paper)

Marion Mitchell Morrison (born Marion Robert Morrison; May 26, 1907 – June 11, 1979), better known by his stage name John Wayne and the nickname Duke, was an American actor, director, and producer.[1] An Academy Award-winner for True Grit (1969), Wayne was among the top box office draws for three decades.

Born in Winterset, Iowa, Wayne grew up in Southern California.
He found work at local film studios when he lost his football scholarship to the University of Southern California (USC) as a result of a bodysurfing accident.

[4]:63–64 Initially working for the Fox Film Corporation, he mostly appeared in small bit parts.
His first leading role came in Raoul Walsh's lavish widescreen epic The Big Trail (1930),
which led to leading roles in numerous B movies throughout the 1930s, many of them in the Western genre.

Wayne's career took off in 1939, with John Ford's Stagecoach making him an instant mainstream star.
Wayne went on to star in 142 pictures. Biographer Ronald Davis says:
"John Wayne personified for millions the nation's frontier heritage.
Eighty-three of his movies were Westerns, and in them he played cowboys,
cavalrymen, and unconquerable loners extracted from the Republic's central creation myth."

Wayne's other well-known Western roles include a cattleman
driving his herd north on the Chisholm Trail in Red River (1948),
a Civil War veteran whose young niece is abducted by a tribe of Comanches in The Searchers (1956),
and a troubled rancher competing with an Eastern lawyer for a woman's hand in marriage in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962).

He is also remembered for his roles in The Quiet Man (1952), Rio Bravo (1959),
and The Longest Day (1962). In his final screen performance,
he starred as an aging gunfighter battling cancer in The Shootist (1976).
He appeared with many important Hollywood stars of his era,
and his last public appearance was at the Academy Awards ceremony on April 9, 1979.

I apologize for favoriting a bunch of your stuff and no doubt giving you a whole ton of notifications, but when I saw your drawing of John Banner I just had to see what else you had to offer. WOW! You are an AMAZING artist! You have captured so many people I love perfectly. I wish I had your level of skill. My drawings are decent, but these....THESE are incredible! 

Oh, and one more thing. (Columbo, hehe) Do you do requests? If so, could you please draw Bob Crane sometime? That would be awesome. 

Can't wait to see more of your work!!!
