While filling out a questionnaire, I was asked about my favorite pieces from my gallery. It was then that I realized that one of my favorite pieces wasn't even in my gallery.
To those of you familiar with my other work: I know what you're thinking. This isn't the type of work I normally do (here you see the messy layers, the flat hair, the total chaos of shapes that make up the entire piece). Definitely not the neat, near-neurotic work that I normally shoot for.
But I love this piece for reasons that have NOTHING to do with style or technique. The reason I like this piece is completely personal. In all honesty, it's got a lot of flaws. But it's the story behind this vector that makes me love it so much.
The subject of the piece is Andrew W.K. (and from the looks of things, probably circa 2001-2003). He is one of my favorite musicians/performers/speakers/party-starters/motivators/etc. , etc, etc...
I'm happy that the stars were aligned, and I was able to meet him
On a final note: Criticism is discouraged for this piece. It's not about how many layers I used, it's not about technique, it's not about how many hours it took, or what color combinations I chose.
Yes, there is a High Quality version that was eventually printed (and signed
along with pictures with him - all of which I cherish dearly
). But that version will not be uploaded here. Thanks for viewing and reading!
