Time Out New York: Keith David

This week's "Hot Seat" subject for Time Out New York is actor and all around cool cat Keith David, who is currently providing a voice in the animated film Coraline.

I first saw David in the 1982 John Carpenter classic The Thing (in itself a remake of the classic original), and it was cool to get to do a portrait of him.

I wanted to do something cool in return, so I stuck with lots of blues and subdued tones (not even any white), and while the piece didn't quite come out as well as I hoped, overall I was happy with it, as was the TONY.
