This was based around the mildly humorous idea that I always thought George Washington’s head looked like a lumpy pear. Being an artist, I thought I’d bring that grand vision to life! In fact its only the first in a series of presidents whose heads remind me of other things, but the other pieces are still in progress. The nicest part about this piece was i got to play around with some subtle aesthetic aspects. A few hatches there. Some splatter brush there. A couple Ben-Day dots over there. All in all I’m pleased. More to come sooner or later.
If you find G.W.’s head as amusing as I did you can find print, t-shirts and other items based off of this design HERE!
