The netizens began speculating about how he makes the portraits in short duration of time, while some were concerned about the confidentiality of the news as it is shared with the artist before the announcement.  


A user said, “Do they lock him in a bunker so he doesn’t tell anyone the name of the winners before they’re announced?”
