Does he do smiles? :-)Arresting images, yes; and truthful.
Whew. After I posted that, I panicked. Well; slightly.I realized I had assumed a male gender, and once I thought about it, could not justify it. "OMG", I thought. "What if the artist is female!? I'd have so much explaining to do!" Took me 4 googles, but imagine my relief when I finally found an image, and he's male.What a narrow escape. :-)
So very interesting. Before I dug into his site, I was certain that the artist was female as the perspective was so feminine to my eye; beauty without subterfuge. I was sure the portrait of the little round Asian guy holding the cat was her brother! :D
