R.I.P. Tribute to a man have never met.
Death is a delicate subject for everyone involved, and as an artist, a portrait artist, I am tasked with the reanimation of someone's life in an image. I For me the difference between drawing someone alive and someone who has passed is that in life we change, we are never the same, there is a fluidity with life that creates innumerable variables and probabilities. I can capture a moment in someone's life when I draw them face to face, there are characteristics and quirks. With the dead I am given the responsibility of drawing a lifetime, I have to create a 2 dimensional space or window, if you will, for the dead to live again.
