John Lydon...to me...is the ultimate cool punk. He has a style of his own. I love his attitude, the fact that he is so opinionated and speaks how he feels regardless of how that may be taken or interpretted. I wanted to paint him in his more mature years as I love the craggy face, it is wonderful to paint. I chose a background of tartan because it epitomises punk style. Sadly I never saw him live in the days of The Sex Pistols, but have seen him perform in PIL, which was fantastic.
