New Project – Steampunk Portraits!

This is Steampunk Think Jules Verne…Victorian England…Wild, Wild West (the 60’s TV show with Robert Conrad and Ross Martin, or the 90’s remake with Will Smith).

Gamer…the Portrait

Hi Friends, In between client work, it’s important to keep the creative juices flowing. Having been subject to hours of squealing tires, revving engines, explosions, and apparent talking to himself (with the online games), I thought I’d try to capture some of the essence of the gaming experience with my son as prime portrait candidate.
