A series of small portraits I did for The Stranger. This is actually part of a larger series of 15 or so, with the rest to come sometime soon. All of them are Republican Presidential hopefuls. This was a total blast to do!


The assignment's concept here was "from beyond the grave". I wanted to push my solution beyond a bunch of wavy hands coming out of the ground, which was definitely the first image that popped into my head.

What you see here is an image of me and my grandfather, who passed away when I was seven or so. It's strange how someone you knew for so short of a time can still leave such an impact. I still think about him.


Client: The Stranger
This piece was a lot of fun! The figure is not particularly well known, but he's the incoming president of Washington University, hence the WU. He's also a mormon republican. Fun.
