Before Netflix, Brian was a fan of X-Factor Australia. So one day, he decided to do a charcoal portrait of one of the judges, Ronan Keating. No, Ronan did not commission Brian. It was done just as a hobby.
But even Brian himself was astounded by the result! He was extremely satisfied at how the eyes were done, so real and piercing, and if you look closely, you can even see the little veins on the white of the eyes.
