After finding my Ultimate Warrior painting, I thought I’d go back in time and revisit the style, and naturally my first choice for experimentation was Freddie. I forget how long I spent on The Warrior, but I’m sure it was significantly longer than the round-about three hours of this exercise. It was much more fun than I remember it being, though I might just think that because I didn’t have to draw a face!
It’s thirty years since the fantastic Magic concerts at Wembley. I’m glad this opportunity came up as I was thinking earlier about doing something to recognise that. I had heard Queen surely before I was even born, but my first memory of seeing them, and Freddie, was on a video of one of these concerts. I was blown away, of course – and still am. No-one can touch Freddie.
