Welcome to portraits in pen-and-ink and oil by Jonathan Machen. I am available for portrait commissions. Here you can find some unusual portrait ideas, examples of portraits, examples of pet portraits, person drawings, hand-drawn or hand-drawn portraits, ideas for gift drawings, drawings of the past, drawings of memories, drawings of friends, drawings  of children, drawings that are based on photographs.

what qualifies as a portrait?

Look at some of the examples I’ve put on this page. What could I draw for you, that will end up as a finished drawing that will bring out the essence of a person, place or thing? What can I draw for you, that will depict someone or something that has meaning for you personally –  be it your pet, your house,  your vehicle, landscape or geographical area? It could be your best friend, your Mom, a flower – or even a rock!

More examples of recent portraits can be found here

A more extensive archive of my drawings of people can be found here.

For you, I could also draw a concept, – a technical illustration – a depiction of an idea – anything is fair game, as long as it is not offensive or derogatory.
