I can push pixels around, but I can't draw at all and I always have such great admiration for those who can.
Diane sent me this great drawing that she did and I'm happy to be able to share it with you.
Along with being one of the most photographed actors around, I'd bet that he's the subject of countless works of art as well, from notebooks to sketchbooks to oil paintings.
I've been lucky enough to receive and share several drawings by Maribel.
On the web there are drawings by the talented Lailinka and also, KeanuWeb has a large collection of drawings by some very talented artists and fans as well..
Drawings, songs, stories and poetry....Keanu certainly is a wonderful muse and it's always great to see what he inspires in others.

Yes, they are really beautiful :-)
I wish I had a talent like that... I once tried to paint a sea-side sunset, but the colors went all runny, and it ended up looking like a green egg about to plunge into a bowl of vegetable-soup.
I haven't tried it since :-(
You're really lucky to get drawings like that 'send in' :-)
*standing back, then moving forward. squinting* Ah, yes...
I see the pain, the struggle, the humanity, the struggle of the pain within the humanity...the pain of the struggle of the pain within the humanity...the lack of focus indicating a lack of clarity in the perceptions of the subject, the complete abandonment to the moment of the brush-strokes...the removal of the subject in the immediacy of the moment...the moment when you realize...
The insight into the subject's personality is acute and...did I say immediate...I'll say it again...immediate and you get the feeling...*mention Renoir, Van Gough, Klee, Miró, and Chagall in comparison*...that the artist uses her great perception within the space...
I like the painting.
Beautiful. A moment in time captured forever. Thanks Diane. I'm curious though...oils? pastels?
Hey Krix, thanks so much for posting this. It seem's unreal to see something I did on your sight for all to see. Somewhat strange I guess but I like it! Tabitha all I can say about your comments is Wow and thanks. --sigh-- now if only I could actually touch his face.
Well done Diane - really good job...
I need lessons - how much do you charge?
Irene, its actually just a #2 pencil on a piece of copy paper at my job. I came home and added acrylic paint to the back then I messed around with it some more on PhotoImpression. So it could have been loads better if I had used professional pencil's and oil paints and on actual canvas or art paper....but seeing as how I was bored at work when I did this I could only use the meesley tools I had around me. As Paul Harvey say's "Now you know the rest of the story."
Keanuette....thanks...actually I am not that good...in art class in high school my teacher put me in portfolio class and the other students art in that class was just so much better than mine that I sorta quit drawing after high school. If something REALLY inspires me (like our Keanu) I'll pick up a pencil and use a photograph to draw from but other than that I don't draw much. I write poetry more. Have yet to write anything about our man because he is...well, above words. Hard to find words to use when expressing feelings or thoughts about the man. I'm sure Krix has come across this problem...but somehow she get's the words out and when she can't she give's us a picture to blow our minds away or some awesome graphics for use to drool at and use on our own PC's. Man I admire her for putting together such a respectable site.
Art is art, krixy...pixels or no.
Diane, Professional tools or not, it still looks great! I keep a sketch pad, pencils and charcoal in my desk drawer at work for those "inspired moments". An hour of solitude with the door shut and I'm lost to the world. All it takes is an open mind, a muse, and the world is your playground. Keep it up.
