The idea was to create a painting of myself in pop art style. I found these awesome examples on face book, the artist takes real photos and turns them into comic like pictures. The resemblance is amazing and they are so happy and fun.
I wanted to do something similar and this selfie came to mind, this photo was taken and turned into a birthday card for my cousin. It became the perfect reference for my next portrait
Dont think for one minute this was easy, I struggled through it. The references look easy and simple but they are computerised images. So trying to copy the results of a computer and putting into a canvas came with some challenges. 2015 was the year for learning and overcoming some of those struggles and challenges
