From The Vault: Spencer Tracy - 1993

One of the earliest attempts at illustrating in this cut-paper style--a portrait of a particularly haggard Spencer Tracy.

I was--and still am--a big fan of the actor, and around this time I was renting every movie with him in it I could get my hands on. Later in his career, he seemed to specialize in roles where he was made to look weathered, beaten, down and out--or some combo of all three.

While it's not that great a likeness, I do like the cartoony looseness of it, something I haven't been able to pull of that much as the style developed.
