The Illustrated Man
|Self-Portrait, May 2003|
|Self Portrait with Larry's illustration, July 2014|
I have an online crush on writer/singer/illustrator Larry Duplechan, author of the groundbreaking novel Blackbird (recently made into a film directed by Patrick Ian Polk) and other wonderful books. Last spring, I sent him a photo of myself, and he asked if he could do an illustration of it. I enthusiastically agreed and sent him a high-resolution version of the photograph.
Just this week, a print of Larry's illustration of me arrived in my mailbox. I am thrilled. Now, Larry owes me a photoshoot. :)
