Drawing: David Gower

This David Gower caricature was the final cross-hatching experimentation in my series of English cricketers who toured New Zealand in  the summer of 1991/92.  Considered as one of the most stylish and prolific batsman that has ever played the game, ‘Lord Gower’ recorded an impressive First Class record, accumulating over 26,000 runs at an average of 40.08, including 53 centuries, 18 of which were scored in Test matches, including his top total of 215 against Australia at Edgbaston during the 1985 Ashes series. 101 more words
