His name was Irving Penn, I don't know much about his work, other than that it was featured in an old issue of Life Magazine that I was going through. I thought it was a cool photo so I decided to paint it, and my painting won a Judge's Award in the Teen Art's Fair, which was pretty cool. Like I said I'm not that familiar with his work, but I figured I'd put something up here about it. His photo inspired me and I'm sure he's inspired other people too.
In other news, I don't know if anyone reads this blog but I realized I haven't uploaded any real art of mine in a while. I have a bunch of stuff, I just have to take pictures of it.
