Mustaches All Around

Hey Friends,

Here's my entry in Anna D's portrait book. This is a complete spinoff of what I usually make. It was very experimental and I was aggressive. I hope you like it Anna D. I'm very sorry it's late. There was a lot of thought and time put into this one. That and babies take a lot of time.

Also for those interested, I'm posting the hi-res to flickr. Just click into "Actions" then "View all Sizes" and select "Original".

Very nice. I like the experiment. More, more.

Glad you guys like it.

Now I've got to figure out this book is going. Is it still going to Olya? If so I want to make sure I have her updated address before I send it.

I'd like to wait about a week before sending so the paint can completely cure. But I think it will require a sheet of glassine paper between the pages. I'll make sure to include that.

Oh, WOW. Chris you have raised the bar. Lucky Anna!!
My two cents would be to choose someone on the list without a book, unless we hear from Olya that she has sent Samantha's book on. Olya? Any news??

Chris Menice said...

Thanks Melissa! I'm glad to have a good reaction because it was hard and I was so uncertain about it. I'm happy with the result.

I'm happy to send to anyone who wants the book and is ready to receive it.

Thanks Samantha! I'm glad you like it! I've been admiring your work in Emma's book, while I figure out how to proceed.
