This is my portrait for November, George Orwell (his real name was Eric Arthur Blair). Author of Animal Farm and, of course, 1984. He also wrote numerous essays, articles, and the like. He was very political and outspoken. Also he was shot through the throat by a sniper in the Spanish Civil War and lived, so he's pretty hard core. 9x12 Watercolor paper with disposable technical pens. from a photo found on the internet.
