illustration Friday: Portrait
I don't have time to do something new this week. I know, I am lame. I'm trying to finish up a picture book, do a little book cover and prepare for the wrilting and illustrating conference next week. Anyway, I thought I would post this little portrait. This is from "Showdown at Slickrock", my very first picture book (1995). Wow, that was a long long time ago. This was always one of my favorite portrait type paintings I have ever done. If I remember right it was inspired by some photos of Butch Cassidy and his gang. I still have this one hanging on my wall in a cool oval frame.
Shucks, since I'm posting old portraits, I thought I would post this one too. A bunch of little portraits of famous Americans done for Leapfrog. Enjoy.
