the Poet

This is my take on a poet.
Sorry for the break, took a little trip and saw the beautiful city of Prague and the Bavarian region of Germany. So now I am back and inspired, especially by the Alphonse Mucha work I saw. Mucha is in my opinion the greatest artist of all time, his posters are great but you must see his oil paintings and especially his Slav epic (be sure to visit this link though the images are mediocre) to know what I mean.

in other news, check out the updated clean edges on my previous Sweeney Todd post, thanks Shawn.

I love the texture in his beard.

What a Mission Impossible tour? I didn't know. But we did find the location of the first scene and got my picture taken in front of the gate where the girl gets stabbed.

...well, ...there's not actually an official "Mission Impossible" tour... they just shot the first movie there and it's kinda interesting to see some of the spots they filmed at... did you see the restaurant where they did the big exploding gum fish tank deal?
