portrait


Hey guys. Sorry for the slow posts, I've a lot to keep me busy lately...I'm not complaining!! I'll throw up this painting (oil with a few digital tweaks I did at the Illustration Academy) before I head to New York for the next couple of days. It's a portrait of the white slave from Puddnhead Wilson by Mark Twain.

Leyendecker exhibit here I come!!!!!

take care,
-francis

Looking great man, I love the sharp focus on the background.
I saw a picture of you working on this on Pratt's blog, needless to say I'm jealous as a muthuh. I want to be back at the academy right now!
