Drawing: Mark Rylance as Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron

Mark Rylance won both the Olivier and the Tony Awards for his performance as Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron – the opinionated eccentric in Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem. “Rylance raises his game even higher and shows he is one of the greats,” said The Sunday Times. Time Out stated, “Believe the hype. Rylance’s astonishing final scene is as close to real magic as you’ll find.”

Mark signed this aqua-crayon and black conté sketch at the Apollo Theatre, London in February 2011.  For my black and white alternate see here.
