Drawing: Amy Adams as The Baker’s Wife in Into The Woods


Last time five time Oscar nominee Amy Adams signed a sketch for me the weather gods were not kind, but she was and managed to graph my drawing despite the drops. This time the rain threatened… but that’s all at the Gala Screening of Tom Ford’s intoxicating thriller NOCTURNAL ANIMALS at the BFI London Film Festival on Friday night. I did this drawing of Amy as the Baker’s Wife in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony-Award winning musical INTO THE WOODS which was part of the Delacorte Theatre’s 2012 summer series in New York’s Central Park.

I was especially pleased  because she only did a small section of the crowd in a restricted red carpet area at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square and she was only signing her quick, shortened double ‘a’ initial sig (which I quite like). With the sketch she took the time to chat and only dedicate, but the sign her full autograph.

Amy Adams portrays Lois Lane in the rebooted Superman franchise Man of Steel. The 38 year old, three time Academy Award nominee braved the wind and the rain in Leicester Square, London to sign for as many people as possible. Including my sketch. Even though the wind was flapping it around and the rain was turning it into machĂ© she took her time to sign an dedicate it and compliment me – which I returned – a real trooper.
