This is my last assignment for my illustration class call "Notorious". We were suppose to do a dead on celebrity portrait on someone who is..... Ballsy, as my instructor puts it. So I picked Joaquin Phoenix during his crazy period. Because now we all know it was all just an act. It wasn't a short act either, he took at least 2 years to convince everyone that he snapped and made a movie about it and EVERYONE thought he was nuts. THAT is an artist dedicating to his craft, so I painted him during the most interesting moments of his career up till now.
