The Flash Basher, The Brit, The Judge and The X-Man

Here are a few portraits I've done over the last week or so of folks who have made the headlines for various reasons.

My favorite one is the Malcolm X portrait. While searching for a reference picture I watched a few videos of some of his speeches. Wow! I'm not a mystic by nature but I must confess I was quite moved as I did the drawing for this portrait. I think he has the most powerful face I've ever seen.

I don't know why but I enjoy doing portraits more then I used to. I can't explain why. I don't even know why I bring it up. Oh well...enjoy.

Tikkun Tear Sheet

"Tikkun is a magazine dedicated to healing and transforming the world. We seek articles that directly or indirectly give us new insight on how to make that healing and transformation a reality."(From Tikkun Website)

This is a tear sheet from a magazine I appear in from time to time called Tikkun. This magazine covers a wide range of subjects such as politics, economics, culture, religion, psychology, to mention only a few.

It's a sharply presented and well written publication chuck full of interesting and thoughtful articles.

I'm very proud to be associated with it.

This Illustration falls into the simple idea and composition category that I just love. The simplicity of composition allows me to concentrate on colors and textures.

In terms of subject matter, how very sad.
