These drawings are so bad they're actually good

A little late to the party on Sean Ryan's Badly Drawn Models, but better late than never. His Instagram account is full of illustrations of 'beautiful people, drawn badly' that they're actually impressive.

   The 30-year-old illustrator from Liverpool never studied fashion and never really took art seriously in school. "I failed my art GCSE and, at the time, that pretty much ended any aspirations of becoming 'an artist'," he told Dazed. However by caricaturing famous models like Candice Swanepoel, Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne almost beyond recognition, Sean has gained almost 46,000 followers on Instagram.

   "None of the models that I've drawn have asked me to take their picture down or told me that they hate it, so I guess that's a positive," he added. "I haven’t had any unusual commissions, either, but I'd be happy to receive them!"

   Take a look at some of his illustrations from his Instagram page below. And if models aren't your thing, Sean also has IG pages devoted to badly drawn authors, rappers and footballers too. You can even get your own 'badly drawn portrait' done for £50.
