Illustrations for Café Magazine
I was asked by the art director at Cafe to do a few illustration about the academy awards. One was of Jack Nicholson looking smug in his signature orange ray bans, and the other of Leonardo Dicaprio. I got to read through the article and decide which scene I wanted to do. The scene I chose to illustrate is when Leo Dicaprio learns he has failed to win best actor yet again (losing to the equally smug Matthew Mconaughey.... ) For this painting I used a picture of Leo from the movie Blood Diamond where he looked appropriately enraged, cleaned up his look and put him in a suit.
