Unique. Especially the color choices; I haven't seen a painting that effectively uses brown until now.

Did you use a different type of canvas for this? Or did you have another way to employ texture. Because...let's just say the texture is just WOAH!

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

I like how you portrayed the frustration. The way the hand is reaching out to the audience.It's almost 3D. You are a good illustrator. Thank you very much for sharing.

This is great. It makes me smile, which is a wonderful thing. I love seeing a portrait that isn't about how beautiful someone is, or how heart broken. He's just... goofy, weird, random. it's great.

I would have never thought that china markers/pencils on wood would have such a great contrast. Excellent representation of the soul of the artist. Knowing that this is a self portrait makes it all the more impressive for me as the patron viewing the art work. I can not wait to see what you will be doing next Jordan. Impressive!
