Here's a portrait I did of Michael Rappaport, the director of the new documentary/film on A Tribe Called Quest. This was probably the most awesome art direction I ever had on a job....I was told just do what I do and don't even bother sending a sketch. I wish more art directors were bold enough to do that! I always believe the best work is done with the least art direction/meddling possible.
I tried to keep the colors masculine and tied them into the colors that A Tribe Called Quest often used (black/red/green). I enjoyed working in texture with my linework in this piece...it is something I will definitely do in the future again.
