London (ANI): Late King of Pop Michael Jackson loved to draw sketches of himself as a child, says friend and plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Hoefflin. The 'Thriller" hitmaker had given his sketches, including a self-portrait, a drawing of himself as a child and an image of his famous glove—drawn by him in 1985—to pal Hoefflin.
And Hoefflin, 63, is now planning to create a book of the sketches. “One of the many things people don''t know about Michael was that he loved to draw," the Sun quoted him as saying.
“He gained incredible self-confidence in the 1980s when he lived with me, and we would spend hours painting together. As a gift, he drew countless pictures of himself as a young boy and of the man he hoped he would grow up to be," Hoefflin added.
