From The Vault: "Lauren Bacall" - 2003

This portrait of Lauren Bacall (circa mid-1940s) was produced in 2003, during a very productive time. I had just moved into a new apartment, had just started dating my Darlin' Tracy, and a lot of new, exciting work was coming in. I was really operating on all thrusters, and I basically couldn't produce pieces fast enough.

And while I had always intended this to be a portrait of Bacall, it was more the color scheme and design I was going for--the shape is unusual for me, and looking back on it now it reminds me a bit of a lobby card from that era of moviemaking.

Plus I really like the colors, the pose--dang! This one turned out really well!
