self portrizzle



Man, Christmas is almost here. It's east to forget that it's that time of year in Florida. Yesterday I was walking around outside in shorts. Back when I was growing up in Detroit, we would have had a few snow days by now..ha.

But here is a self portrait. A lot of experimentation, but it was fun. I wanted an excuse to do some custom type, since I'll be doing a significant amount in a large project I am about to begin.

Happy Holidays,
-francis

wow that really did change a lot man. Love the pallet and the razor marks. Glad you left some of the details out and brought it down to those initial layers.

Good job on the painting man, can't wait to all see this custom type your talking about. Man I was in Michigan a couple months back around 7 Mile - Royal Oak, its alright, but if you don't have a car...you're going nowhere.
