Brisbane Times – Artist uses sketches to strike up conversation

If you are lucky enough to find William Seymour-Jones around the festival, he may sketch your portrait for the low price of a conversation.

The sketcher will be sitting with his “free portraits” sign in the shade, independent of festival management and therefore unpaid.

“Honestly, to level with you, I do it to just talk to people,” he said.

“For instance, if I see a beautiful girl, I wouldn’t have the courage to talk to her unless I was doing this.”

His satisfied subjects earned him $10 in tips on his first day.

“It’s enough to buy a beer!” He said.
