Jack-In-The-Glass



After my professor's feedback and words of wisdom, big Jack was deemed fit to enter the "The Case." The cases are mounted in the lobby of the fine arts building, to which only students and faculty have access. For the most part, no public person will see it, although its still an honor to be displayed with the best. I made a lot of subtle changes to the drawing, most of which may be unnoticeable under the glare of the glass. Of course, in the midst of my joyful glee at my professor's words "Let's hang it up," I neglected to take a decent shot of it finished.

When looking at the broad view of the lobby showing both cases, the one on the right contains works from other students in my class, all three of which are great. I have to say I think they out-shined me quite a bit with their rendering, though I think two of the subjects are bit old fashioned.

I notice your rendering is the only dude that made it into a glass. All the other subjects were females.

The fickle nod of approval from a professor is surely something to savor!!

damn straight john, especially with this guy. yeah james, just about everyone in the class chose a female subject, which is great dont get me wrong. But my professor has this ting for old photos from the 40's which has an "older" influence on the projects. The 40's stuff is beautiful but just seemed a bit plastic and overdone.
THANKS DEE!

Man, that is a rockin' rendering of Nicholson. I have him on my Easy Rider poster in that goofball football helmet, but this is way cooler. Hanging in the case, too? Will, it appears that, as they say, you "have arrived."
