Paralyzed man sketches Andy Murray by guiding pencil with mouth
Andy Murray opened his Wimbledon 2015 campaign on Tuesday, and one British man celebrated by drawing a portrait of Andy—using just his mouth.
Henry Fraser, an artist paralyzed from the shoulders down, posted a picture of the drawing on Twitter on Sunday. He has been retweeted nearly 600 times, including by Murray.
Fraser guides his pencil with his mouth.
"He shows a lot of emotion through his face and I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could capture that passion and emotion with a pencil drawing," Fraser told Mashable.
Fraser's spinal cord was paralyzed in a 2009 accident, but taught himself how to draw again after using a stylus on an iPad. He then graduated to using paint brushes and pencils to create images of former British rugby player Jonny Wilkinson and Olympic champion Usain Bolt.
Murray earned a straight-sets victory on Tuesday to advance to the second round.
