Continuing on with Hispanic Heritage Month, for this week’s Fan Art Fridays we have the one and only Lin-Manuel Miranda!
The actor put out an amazing song today for Puerto Rico’s hurricane relief efforts called “Almost Like Praying,” which features a long list of fellow Latin American artists including Alex Lacamoire, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Rita Moreno, Ednita Nazario, Joell Ortiz, Anthony Ramos, and Gina Rodriguez.
In light of this, I went on the hunt for some fan art of Lin-Manuel, and of course the majority of what I could find is Hamilton-related. I’m not complaining, though.
This black and white sketch is by Eleanor Orchard. She does a lot of sketches of K-Pop artists as well. I love how serious Lin-Manuel looks here.
See the original fan art on Tumblr and don’t forget to check out “Almost Like Praying”.
Is this supposed to be the re-emancipation of Mimi?
This week, Mariah Carey did a photo shoot while floating on the Dead Sea to promote Dead Sea Cosmetics, and it is now confirmed that she’s indeed extra.
I mean, I can’t say I would pass up the opportunity to do a photo shoot on such a gorgeous piece of scenery, especially if I were a multi-platinum artist.
To celebrate her extra-ness (is that a word?), let’s enjoy a normal pencil sketch I found of the singer on Pinterest by reifra.

Even though Pierce Brosnan will always be my favorite James Bond, I am deeply saddened that we lost our 1973 Bond, Sir Roger Moore, this week.
In remembrance, this week’s Fan Art Friday’s goes out to Sir Moore. Enjoy this sketch of the actor as James Bond by Patricio Carbajal, also known as Pat. I can’t get over how perfect the hair is in this rough sketch!
See more of Pat’s art at www.patart-pat.blogspot.com, and enjoy one of Sir Roger Moore’s James Bond scenes below.
Today our favorite grumpy nerd from The Big Bang Theory turned 44!
Jim Parsons is quite a character, both in and off screen. You’ve gotta love it when an actor’s personality shines through his work.
On honor of his birthday, I’ve decided to feature some fan art I found of the actor by rgbcn over on Instagram. The black and white sketch captures Jim Parsons’ pursed lips perfectly.
Happy Birthday, Jim Parsons! Check out more fan art by rgbcn at www.instagram.com/rgbcn.
Amy Schumer has another movie coming out, and I’m super excited.
How am I supposed to wait until May for Snatched?! It seems so far away!
Anyway, I thought I’d share this sketch of Amy Schumer I found on Deviant Art by seanjo. She looks all perky and put together as opposed to the mess that goes down in the trailer for Snatched.

Sometimes I forget that YouTuber Jim Chapman used to draw, so when I saw this video he posted earlier in the week of himself drawing fellow YouTuber Troye Sivan, I was super hyped!
After asking fans what he should draw in a video, someone tweeted Jim a photo of Troye Sivan, to which he reckons looked “so delicious.” And so we have it: a sketch of Troye by the talented Jim Chapman.
Enjoy the video below!
Paul McCartney was denied entry to Tyga’s Grammys after-party on Monday night and it’s seriously just the rudest thing I’ve heard all week.
Like, why you gotta be so mean?! Gosh.
Anyway, Paul, if you and your friends want you can totally come chill with me on my 22nd birthday in May.
I picked this sketch of Paul McCartney I found on Deviant Art to cheer up anyone that also felt this was wrong. The sketch was created by Vinicius Costa and it was inspired by this April 1965 Harpers Bazaar photo of Paul McCartney in a space suit. He looks just a tad bit sad in this sketch, doesn’t he?
