I forgot to include this little gem in the last posting. It is a portrait of perhaps one of the most manly men in history. A man who eats bacon and KFC gravy with every meal. A man who has fought a silver-back gorilla over a matter of 50 cents. A man who doesn't know the meaning of the word brunch and has never had tofu in his life. Thats right, its a portrait of me.
This work was recently completed by my friend Matthew Mancini, and to make a portrait this manly, one has to be ready for the task. Matthew Mancini was born in the woods and raised by Grizzly bears until the age of 10. One day he got hungry and devoured his surrogate bear family. He consumed their hearts first, washed down with a handle of Jack Daniels, in order to gain their power. Researchers believe this is where he first gained his painting superpowers. Since this time, Matt resides in the Muskoka area of Ontario, living off the land and teaching art workshops.
