For my recent show at Mondo Gallery I put together a collection of Bastards. Proofs and damaged prints that I ripped up and created new portraits out of. The results were interesting, sometimes hilarious, and once in a while, terrifying. You can see all 23 on sirmikeofmitchell.com
You can see (and purchase) them in person at Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX until May 25th.
If you haven’t seen Oldboy, you owe it to yourself. Don’t watch a trailer, just rent/buy it (non dubbed, subtitle version) and watch it. One of my very favorite foreign films and has one of the best fight scenes of all time.
This is a portrait I did of redditor Copo55 who is a 22 year old with Treacher Collin Syndrome. Copo55 was awesome enough to open up to reddit in an AMA where anyone could ask him anything about his life, and it was a seriously inspiring thing to read, so as a thanks I quickly painted this up (in about 40 minutes?) and posted it.
It was one of the more enjoyable paintings I have done in a long time. He has such a unique and awesome face, and he was awesome enough to give me permission to post it here.
