Jack White
Inspired by his recent Blunderbuss tour, with his favourite blue color. I've wanted to do a portrait with one of his hats, and this pose reminded me a bit of Clockwork Orange's Malcolm McDowell.
Dedicated to my friend ~GuitarLuv and all you Jack White fans!

Hi Lady J, thanks!
I hope all is well with you, and your daughter and your new life...

I have been rather immersed in the challenge of digital painting, and work for clients, but I will get back here and post more new work soon. And I am not abandoning traditional, not at the moment I am disciplining myself not to fall back on my tried and true techniques(traditional), and keep pushing out of my comfort zone. I know in the end it will all serve the same purpose: to be versatile and switch effortlessly between mediums when needed. :D

My daughter has graduated high school and will be headed to NYC for art school this fall at Parson' I'll miss her dearly but have lots more time (I hope) to be here :D
