One pleasure of working digitally is the endless ability to tweak or completely change your images, without affecting the original or worrying about matching dried out paint. This caricature/portrait was part of a poster for a long-gone show. However, I liked the character and his polite anxiety too much to abandon him, so spent the afternoon developing the image further. For some reason I was thinking “archaeologist taking a bad snapshot of himself in a mysterious cave”. Not sure why . . .
The background is abstracted from holiday snapshots taken in Karnak, the foreground image digitally painted using a Wacom tablet.
