My Pop Art Portrait Project

Recently I’ve been sharing symmetrical portrait illustrations on various mindshare platforms. It is something that I picked up from an artist that I respect named T.N. Perkins. The last two that I’ve done, as of this blog entry, have been Lynda Carter and Carrie Fisher. My goal with these two illustrations were to create a more realistic representation of my subjects. I feel like my attempt with Lynda fell short, but I learned some lessons and applied what I had learned to my rendering of Carrie. I really think that I did a much better job on this last one by not hyper focusing on accuracy and leaning into creating an essence of the woman. The following have been my Pop Art Portrait series so far. I dig doing these and, while I will also be doing other style drawings, I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.
