Illustration Friday - Portrait

This is my first entry to Illustration Friday which my friend Nina introduced me to. They are not my recent work as I seldom pick up my brush nowadays.

The main one which I've sent to Illustration Friday is my copy, acrylic on canvas, of a poster of Lisa Simpson Scream (which I also use my profile picture for my blog). I thought it is kind of a portrait as a lot of people do relate more with the Simpsons than real life human being!

Lisa Scream

I painted this summer 2004 for my fella, Jules, as he is a big Simpsons fan and had that poster hanging on the wall behind his bed. He is my real life Homer!!

Lisa is now happily hanging in our living room watching over us. I have to say that to date, it is my favouritest painting that I've done. Even though it's a copy of a poster. Well, portraits are not just painted through sittings... photographs would do nicely... and so does posters!

Below is just something I did when I was a bit bored in winter 2002. Someone told me it looked like I was influenced by Modigliani... and I thought cut your bullshit and pretending you're posh art critic.
