Neville -Nev- MacDonald from band, Skin. Thanks to John Meredith for the photo reference
Have been meaning to paint this guy for AGES!!! I only have old pics of him but this is a recent pic.
Am going to share something about myself now which may be mildly interesting. Skin are/were a 90's rock band who i adored and saw loads of times. I am aware that most of you lovely people won't know who i'm talking about because they were never a hugely famous band
Anyway, a while ago i scanned Facebook and YouTube for anything about this band and only found the video for Mr Bean's I Want To Be Elected (they played on that under a different name). So i decided to set up a group on Facebook to find out if there are any other fans and was pleasantly surprised to find there are loads! Unfortunately, for me anyway, another guy set up a similar group and we merged Skin groups. Then guess what happened...members of Skin appeared on that group and then they REFORMED
The unfortunate thing for me is that i got left behind and forgotten
Plus i never got to go to the Download Festival to see them neither
I know this is a sad tale (for me) but it's true. I am so pleased that they have played again and that there are so many other fans. I missed you guys, Nev, Myke, Andy and Dicki
I must thank John Meredith and Jamie McHale though cos they did put my name on the newer Skin group
They are just a lot more outspoken than i
Also, i painted this on the suggestion of Rachel Howley who has been a fantastic friend to me
Now i'm going to hide under this bag
