Time Out New York: Bill Thompson

This week's "Hot Seat" portrait for Time Out New York is NYC mayoral candidate Bill Thompson!

I knew I wanted something very rah-rah patriotic for this, since New York City really is the capital of the United States (sure, sure, its officially Washington...), and I also wanted it slightly old-timey, so I thought it'd be cool to use a vintage shot of the city (from around 1940 or so) as the background.

With the benefit of hindsight, I'm not sure I pulled it off entirely to my satisfaction, but overall I thought it came out pretty well.
