another in my series of portraits of authors fro Intelligent Life Magazine. I must have looked at 40 photos of Mr. Wolfe for this portrait, and he wears this impish smile in nearly every one.
I had a lot of fun with this commission, employing a few lines from Eliot's "Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock":
"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons"
"I grow old … I grow old …
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled."
Charles Dickens, Intelligent Life Magazine
Colin Firth, Intelligent Life Magazine
I liked hearing reports of Mr. Firth's visit to the Intelligent Life offices, and it set the ladies a a-giggle
Tina Brown, Newsweek/Daily Beast
Ms. Brown first contacted me herself, asking if I would like to be the "signature look" of the Daily Beast. I was thrilled!
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
For this commission, the art director left it up to me to add anything to the portrait to help describe Mr. Conan Doyle. I cam e up with the spyglass, of course, and then I'm not sure how it developed into a sort of sporting racquet but it was a delightful turn for the portrait to take!
I have never been much of a George Michael fan, until I saw this video, and now I am fascinated by the possibility that he may be a comic genius...
