"I like to pretend that my art has nothing to do with me."

-- Roy Lichtenstein

Self portrait with hand-painted Lichtenstein mask 10-2-13

I'm still feeling a little bit inspired by the Pop Art movement, so I painted this Lichtenstein-inspired mask.

It's just paint and ink on a cheap plastic blank mask from the craft store.

The ink that I made the dots with smeared a little bit, but that's OK.

It was just an experiment.

I learned from my mistakes.

I do want to try again and make a better one. Next time I'll use something a little more indelible.

Oh, and I came up with a name for this month's "disguise" themed portraits:


Get it? It sounds like "October fest" but with "faced" instead of "fest."

Oh, forget it.
