Georgi Toshev / Георги Тошев

This is a portrait of one of the most famous Bulgarian journalists - Georgi Toshev . I have received a phone call a few weeks ago of young and very talented reporter Danislava Toshkova, who asked me kindly to drawing a special gift for Mr. Toshev . She said , that he is going to present his new book ABBA - LOVE, TRIUMPH, SEPARATION THE STORY OF ABBA BULGARIAN BOOK BY G. TOSHEV "  and this is going to be his special present. That made me incredibly happy. Of course I have done my best to drawing him as real and as classic as possible. Happily the portrait was done in a two - three days in two versions - with and without background. You can easily see the one with the background ( above this text ) and the other version ( the one he own ) is in the pictures below.
