My Newest Portrait


Back in October, my friend Valen and I were sketching at a nearby Whataburger in Mesa, AZ, and I noticed a man standing near the door.

The guy had an amazing face with loads of character—and I told Valen wanted to do a portrait study or caricature of him.

So I asked Valen if I could use his phone and wandered over to the guy and we spoke briefly and he was very cool and allowed me to take some pics for reference—and agreed to let me paint a picture of him.

I settled on doing a more formal portrait and have been working as time allowed—hand painting it into software using my Wacom Intuos Tablet Interface.

I just put the finishing touches on it this morning.

As with everything I tackle when it comes to art I learned a lot by doing this one and am eager to do more.


BTW—I neglected to get this man's name or email to let him know that his portrait is done—so if you know him please send me an e-mail with his e-mail address so I can send a note out and let him know it's done.

Once I know who he is—I can give this painting a more elegant name too.

If you're the subject—thank you again for letting me snap some pics of you and paint this portrait.

Please drop me a line and let me know you've seen it.

I'll still retain ownership and copyright of my work but if you want to share it on social media etc please contact me and we can discuss that.

Either way you are welcome to share this link with friends and family if you like my work.

Thanks again!
