I have submitted an oil painting of William Shatner and a few linoleum prints. He was a tough subject, having no real distinctive features. At one point in the process he resembled Chekhov more than Captain Kirk but I forged ahead to the best of my abilities at present. My husband had the brilliant idea of replacing the Starship Enterprise with the Canadarm. Here's a quick snapshot of the painting - he doesn't look quite so yellow in real life.
I am an illustrator with many years of experience in publishing, editorial, advertising and corporate. My illustration technique is linocut, printed and scanned with color applied in Photoshop. I love mixing old school and digital technologies and now am learning to paint in oils and with a wacom tablet. I'll post my learning curve here. Variety, the spice of life!
