Fantastic portraits. It makes me want to paint traditionally some stuff too (but all I have is box with gouache paint )

Recently I was reading some interview with one european comic artist that I always admired. There was some question related to his loose drawing style he answered that he just hates perfection and there is nothing more boring in art. He also said that art should give pleasure and perfection doesn't do that so he sometimes intentionally leaves drawings a bit rough.
That was small surprise for me but I guess after maybe 50 years of experience in drawing he gets so accurate that he wants to keep it exciting and make some mistakes again. Maybe it's the same happening with your art and it's another stage in progress .
"Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."
