Inspired by Felicity’s perfect rendering of Tom Cruise (check it out on her blog <;) I decided to try an upside-down portrait. It came out a bit wonky, but better than expected. I did readjust a bit after I turned it around. It’s of Jan Assman, an egyptologist, and I found the photo in Le Monde.

    Casey, you’ve moved?? Love the new look and you are now bookmarked!!
    If I could insert a graphic, I’d put in my champagne toast to you!!!
    Lovely portrait! I’m not sure what the original guy looks like but I take a page from Laura’s book: she’s not focusing on a likeness. Just doing “faces”. Seems so much more fun and quiets my inner critic!! I love the banner too!

    Great sketch! I like the upside down method for giving the eye an ability to see patterns and connections. It’s good when you want accuracy although it’s also a relief to draw and not worry about likeness!
