Voice Input Child Identicant
I'm due to contribute a piece of art to a group show called Idiot Box at Gallery 1988: LA. At my wife's urging I've elected to pay homage to what is arguably the worst television sitcom ever made: Small Wonder.
I lost about a week recently to a flu, so I started with a lot less in the way of thumbnails and preliminary sketches than I normally would. I gathered as much photo reference as I could of the original show, took some photos of myself, and ended up resolving a lot of the composition not in my sketchbook but on the painting surface itself: an old tabletop I found years ago in the trash and have been waiting to paint on ever since.
Here's the rough drawing. No time now, on to paint! I'll post more progress soon.
