Here's another one, of my friend Leo. The whole point in these photo-paintings was to show what the person is like on the inside, which is an idea I totally love. It would be awesome to do this for a living, to talk to people, get to know them, really dig deep and have fun. I originally wanted to make empowering portraits and managed to make a couple of them. After about six monts and some baby-portraits later, everyone got really excited about how great a business idea this is and the whole point was overrun by marketing ideas and the pressure to reproduce a certain product or work with existing photos. My point was to interview, photograph, and paint, personally and for individuals with motivation to see themselves in a different light. So, the whole project was left as a fun little personal art project. because i'm really bad at selling out. sorry! :P
Here for the whole lot.
