This is part one of my illustration series of up-and-coming actor GABRIEL FREILICH.

He pronounces it Fry-Lick but apparently that’s debatable among his entire family (some say Frey-Lek). His hero is Ryan Gosling and he aspires to find himself in a film as awesome as ‘Drive’ in the future. Although he looks more like a devious badboy, Gabriel is truly radiant and lighthearted. He’s the first real person I’ve found artistic inspiration in (on a muse-like level). To me, Gabriel looks like an actual real life cartoon character and my sketchbooks would look a lot less beautiful without him in them.
