Angelina Jolie vs. A Basket of Kitten
A friend gave me the idea for this painting after a conversation he had with an Angelina Jolie fan. The fan insisted that nothing would cause her love for Jolie to wain- Not even if Angie was caught punching a basket of kittens. I gathered photo refs of the celebrity, but decided to piece together my own image of her from multiple sources instead of just a single one. I didn't want to "copy" a published photograph, and I also knew I wouldn't be able to find the exact pose I needed anyway.
