This painting is based off a picture that my friend Amber took at their "Mercy" CD release party at Sneaky Dee's in Toronto, back in roughly 2011/2012.

I had a good deal of difficulty with two parts of this picture: The hands, naturally, as it has become apparent that hands are my nemesis; and getting the correct angle of my face, since I am not used to trying to draw/paint faces that are facing aways.
I'm really happy with that ear. It's a small detail, but man.. ears are hard. I also like the way the fur on the cuffs and collar of my jacket turned out. I miss that jacket, even if the zipper never did work properly.
