Self Portrait

Self Portrait

R2D2 was always a dexterous little droid, and this painting shows just how good he really is. Standard 3D holographic images may be easier, but creating a likeness with brush on canvas is FAR more satisfying.

Rembrandt van Rijn was certainly ahead of his time, documenting his life with his series of self portraits. So why not place his painters hat on a popular Star Wars character and create something altogether different. If he were around today, I’m sure he’d approve.

Having reworked a few of the old masters, other characters of popular culture presented themselves and things became more adventurous. This collection of prints began with Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘A Lady with an Ermine’. The lady in question was replaced with Ellen Ripley and the ermine with a small alien. It worked, and soon Spock, Yoda and Deadpool all followed suit.

All work is created with Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablet.
