This project began as a skill building exercise and quickly became something much more meaningful. Each portrait I have done is of a friend or family member and the unique set of antlers I give them enables me to express the things about them that I think are special and interesting. With these pieces, I try to use very minimal color and line and maximize my use of negative space so that each portrait feels light and full of the depicted person’s character.
