More celeb portraits

So I promised I'd be doing more of these, but never got around to it. Here are a couple more for now. Next up, I'm definitely thinking Brad Pitt because he is just too undeniably cool. Maybe Bea Arthur as well.

Grace Jones
My favorite eccentric from the 80's. Super model, actress, singer, artist, muse.

Carl Sagan
Who doesn't love this gentle spirit? I first learned about him years ago in science class, yet he's been popping up a lot lately.

Curiouser and Curiouser

This is the piece I did for the Curiouser and Curiouser show at the Gallery Nucleus back in February. I chose to illustrate Alice eating the two sides of the mushroom, as prescribed by the hookah-smoking caterpillar. I wanted to model Alice off of Alice Liddell, the little girl Lewis Carroll wrote the book for. Done in watercolor and acrylics.
