These pictures were made a few years ago. I really like them, but sadly they are very time consuming so I haven't had time to make one for a long time.

The first one is of my dad and his dog. It was a gift for his birthday.

This one is in more of a pop art style.

It might not seem like it, but both styles are very time consuming. The first one with the requires little preparation, I just draw the image on to the canvas. The timeconsuming bit is finding the colors and gluing it on. The time consuing bit of the "pop art" one is the drawing. I don't remember how many sketches I had to make but it was plenty. its very easy to "loos a person" when you remove most of the facial features. Since the colored areas are fewer and bigger its easier to glue on the paper on these images.

I really appreciate the time and patience you have spent on these - especially the one of your Dad.  The result totally justifies all your efforts.  Your father and his dog are amazingly lifelike.
