OMG this is too awesome!!! Two of my fav things in one painting, number one being Johnny Depp and the other being the style of painting.  I did a painting like that in design school and fell in love.  I even had someone offer me $60 for it but I couldn't bear to part with it.

I love Johnny Depp and I know I would love that hanging on my wall. I've been doing a lot of very minimal colored paintings like this lately using the stenciling idea but (also failing) resorting to hand drawing and filling in spots with my paint. AMAZING JOB!
