Laubenheimer portrait 2
Laubenheimer portraits 1
Another portrait using Mark Laubenheimer's work as reference. This one inspired a lot of embellishment in the facial muscles. Not mine.
I wrote a message to photographer Mark Laubenheimer, asking if I could reference his portrait photography for personal illustration exercises.
Pie in Face
Felix is the sweetest, most feral dog you'll ever find inside a house.
The Priest, Vitsin, and Sad Man in Violet
I think that's pumpkin pie.
Man In Mask
The Priest breaks all conventions with her gender defying role as a female priest. Odd that we still have explicit gender roles...
Judging by the shirt and tie, it's safe to say that this young man has a job, or is part of a religious group...
When the iPad Pro initially came out, I assumed its only purpose was as another gizmo for a consumer culture...
Deer, Astronaut, & Boxer
A fellow artist friend and I agreed to create something based on the keyword "yellow".
Eagle & Lamb
Deer is alert, Astronaut is inspired, and Boxer is ready for anything, especially having his photo taken.
Eagle and Lamb aren't really here.
This started out as a lobster, but then I hated it so I painted Horse over the top.
Pivo y Riba
Once there was a Goat, who lived in the country with a nice family who loved to fly kites.
Pivo y Riba is Russian for "fish and beer".
The After Party
It is my understanding that Podyezd is the Russian word for, among other things, the front area of an apartment building.
After parties are known for their drug and alcohol fueled rejections of common convention.
Tribute to Landseer
Yulia is the portrait of a woman I met in Moscow, Russia, where I lived for two years.
Tribute to Landseer is named for the artist Edwin Henry Landseer...
Giraffe is patient and reserves judgement.
Bathroom 2 is more solitude and filth.
Bathroom 1 is a toilet, in a bathroom.
