About face

MORE than 100 famous Scots, including Sean Connery, Billy Connolly and Rod Stewart, are about to make an exhibition of themselves.Gordon Ramsay, Ewan McGregor, Chancellor Gordon Brown, Jimmy Logan, Annie Lennox and Carol Smillie are among the celebrities captured by the six artists of Glasgow’s Scottish Cartoon Art Studio.Together with Elaine C Smith, Travis singer Fran Healy, Lorraine Kelly, Rikki Fulton and JK Rowling, they will be on show at Edinburgh’s Scottish National Portrait Gallery.The show, Fizzers: The Alternative National Portrait Gallery, runs from Friday until July 2. A book, also called Fizzers – Scots slang for ‘face’ – is published on Friday.*Studio manager Terry Anderson said: “Fizzers isn’t a definitive list of the greatest Scots.”They’re simply the people we feel ‘give good face’ – personalities who are readily recognised by the public and offer great opportunities for humorous interpretation.”from www.eveningtimes.co.uk for more info, visit: National Galleries of Scotland * Fizzers – Scottish Cartoon Art Studio
