Scorsese: an art tribute opens tonight at Bold Hype gallery in NYC, and runs through the weekend.
For the show I made two pieces. First, a lifesize charcoal and graphite drawing of Robert De Niro from Taxi Driver.
|Turns out De Niro has nice lats.|
The original will be accompanied by a limited edition run of 12x24in prints, available first at the show and then after via Spoke Art's website.
|Stoked on how the deckled edges of the prints turned out.|

|Humbled to be in such illustrious company|
|75 artists contributed work resulting in a total over 150 pieces. Wish I could have seen it in person.|
The second piece was a bit smaller. I decided to try and tackle a portrait of Martin Scorsese himself, while attempting to avoid the standard sort of approach taken to images of him.

Word on the street is that Scorsese may actually stop by the show! If you live in the vicinity of NY, the show will be a total blast and you should stop by and check it out. Details are here.
Thanks to Nicolas Guerin for the reference material.
**Addendum: Mr. Scorsese himself did indeed stop by the show. He also generously purchased my portrait of him.
