Illustration Friday: Capture

I think this weeks Illustration Friday theme capture is very fun! It can be interpreted in so many ways. In my work I strive to capture a persons life and personality to tell their story. Especially when doing piece from found photographs. I have said this before, and will forever: the story is in the eyes.

This is one of my favorite favorite photos. This disheveled guy with his boutonnière. I envision him being a groomsmen at a wedding and he has had a bit too much too drink. He is a tad lonely. Hoping to find a chickie to chat up, but he's that angry guy. Cute, mischievous, wounded. Years ago a girl broke his heart, and now he puts up defenses to eliminate future possibilities of pain. I can go on . . . but I wont. I am sure you can imagine the rest.

This piece was just finished yesterday in a batch I am working on for FC next weekend. I am 2/3rds of the way through. I feel like I am running an art marathon! I can see the finish line! It is behind Meltdown Comics on the 12th!

**Each piece is done on a 6"x8" canvas. I should have said that! Sorry!! ;)
