Fred Rogers had the longest running show on public television and what was amazing is that he never talked down to children, but rather talked WITH them. In 1969 he went before a Senate subcommittee to get funding for PBS and scored $20 million by just reading one of his songs to the chairman of the board. He was pretty badass.

Anthony Hopkins may be forever known as the infamous Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter, but every role I see him in he seems to exhibit that fine line between insanity and genius. From Dr. Abraham Van Helsing to Sir John Talbot this madman can keep you on the edge of your seat just by saying a few lines followed by a chilling stare.

This newest portrait is for the King of Undead Rock N' Roll: Rob Zombie. I love the music from this fellow because he makes obscure references to strange, yet important horror films. He even directs his own disturbing films with a very confident vision. I enjoy his ability to combine many art forms while not being afraid to try something new.

This portrait is for the Angry Video Game Nerd or as mortals know him, James Rolfe. Not only do I love his internet comedy video game review show, but his movie reviews make me excited about films that were made decades before I was born! As you can see, each of these portraits will have a different vibe as I illustrate different cultural icons whether they be classical or modern. Hopefully, I can keep up this pace on drawing these inspiring characters.
