Actor Richard E. Grant, singers Adele, Bryan Ferry and Sir Cliff Richard and music mogul Simon Cowell have unveiled self-portraits for a special art project marking Queen Elizabeth II’s upcoming Diamond Jubilee.
The tribute, which will use 100,000 paintings from stars and schoolchildren to make a giant image of the British monarch as she celebrates 60 years on the throne will be unveiled April 19, and is expected to smash a Guinness world record for most artists working on the same art installation, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Adele’s painting, which incorporates false eyelashes, tin foil for earrings and the Union Jack, will be auctioned for charity May 12.

As mentioned elsewhere in previous REG Temple reports, "Boy", the short film starring actor Timothy Spall as a man whose son was killed while cycling on a country road will have a global audience numbering in the hundreds of millions this summer when it is featured during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.
The screenplay of the silent film, which is accompanied by a musical score by Alex Heffes, was written by doctor turned actor Prasanna Puwanarajah who received mentoring from actor Richard E Grant as part of British Airways' Great Britons initiative. The airline, a Tier One partner of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, will also be showing the ten-minute film on flights in the months leading up to the event.
