Self Portrait


I can't exactly remember why I did this self-portrait in the late 1970's -- it may have been part of some idea I had for some self-promotional material I was putting together at the time. I do recall that I was into the whole "Art Nouveau" design thing at that time -- I particularly liked Alphonse Mucha and the treatment of type in his work. The image of myself that I worked from for this illustration was one of four taken in one of those "photo booths" you still see in malls or amusement parks. Ah, those days before digital cameras...! -- PL

This is lovely...it make sme think of the old woodcut prints you see in victorian books.

Reminds me of Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks."
