I think the fact that he pretty much nailed the subsurface scattering is what makes these so believable.
But I’m afraid it’ll pull some Windows 95 shit.
I wrote a rebuttal to the Kurt Vonnegut quote that is about not letting the world make you hard (I know, I know…how cynical).
Aha! Here’s the quote:
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
You don’t get to read my rebuttal (muahaha!), but I wonder how many other people have done the same?
Informal poll: I’d love to know if you have!
I had the pleasure of finally meeting with Tim Okamura while in New York and got to strike a couple of poses for a portrait. If you haven’t come across his work before, it’s about time you did! Represented by galleries in New York, Canada and Italy, Okamura is an extraordinary painter who "investigates identity, the urban environment, and contemporary iconography through a unique method of painting - one that combines an essentially academic approach to the figure with collage, spray paint and mixed media."
An absolute pleasure to be in company with, I visited his studio and got to see a bit of his creative process before downing a couple of beers with him and some new friends. I am very excited to see more work of his. - Yagazie
I want to see what I look like through his eyes.
I love his work.
