Jamie Redux

This is another of beautiful Jamie’s inspirations.  I enjoyed working on this one using negative space — for example, the seams in the sleeves are solely negative space.  The proportions came out a bit weird — but they do reflect my focus on Jamie’s bounty of curly hair — so I think that even in the distortion the drawing reflects what drew me to the inspiration in the first place — always a goal for me on any finished portrait.  Plus several members of my artists’ community were quite taken with this one — so I want to be open to the appeal of expressing my view in its imperfections and the possibility of connecting even in its weirdness.
