Ken Stott

I've always thought that Ken Stott is the perfect actor for the role of Rebus, the fictional detective created by the author Ian Rankin, and has a brilliant face for displaying the very dark emotions always lurking close to the surface of the character. When he smiles though he reminds me of what my wife Liz says about some adult men - sometimes when some men smile they have a certain mischevious look and you get a vision of what they were like when very young so when Stott smiles I can certainly see the young Ken running around in short trousers!This is what I've tried to capture here in this caricature even if he is tucking into his usual fag and a pint. Okay, maybe Liz and I are just weird......
