self portrait May 2011 # 2

It was time to create a new self portrait to use on my blog and website Here are two styles created from a photograph I took of myself.

    I vote for portrait #2. #1 may be getting a little too close to Lon Chaney in the “Phantom of the Opera” poster. Which, by the way, is not you by any stretch of the imagination.

      Thanks for the vote Glenn. I’m not familiar with the Lon Chaney poster,I’ll have to look it up. I often have to decide whether I approach my art as an illustrator or fine artist. The difference being whether I’m doing it for me or a client or potential client. At my age I should be doing it for me. I think that was why i enjoyed working at Maritz. I did it my way.
