It's been quiet here on the blogfront, huh. I've been so busy working lately that I haven't been online much (save for uploading new images to the Black and Orange contest). I am planning on going on a little road trip with my brother starting the middle of next week, so I've been cramming all my work into this week and a half. (I'm tired!) That's where all those above portraits came from. The local alterntative newspaper back in Indianapolis asked me to illustrate 15 different portraits for their holiday gift guide. It's supposed to be a little tongue-in-cheek with descriptions like:
1. The 30-something cousin who still lives in your aunt and uncle’s basement 2. The anti-war, vegan, feminist, PETA supporting, lesbian sister-in-law 3, The pothead step-brother 4. The comic-book collector cousin 5. Your Mom’s third husband, who just happens to be Black 6. Your dad’s new lover Tom 7. The teenage goth niece or nephew 8. The newborn or toddler niece or nephew 9. The academic uncle who is in expert in some obscure literary field 10. The aunt who just happens to be a rich snobby housewife 11. The cousin everyone in the family considers “the artsy one” 12. The one Republican you know who also happens to be your grandfather 13. The family dog and/or cat 14. Mom 15. Dad
Can you guess who is who?
I hope you all have a good weekend! xo
