Time Out New York: Topher Grace

This week's "Hot Seat" portrait for Time Out New York is actor Topher Grace!

As tempting as it was to draw him as Venom (no, I'm kidding), I decided almost immediately to go with a nice, straight-ahead portrait. I originally had a lime green background color, which I thought looked good. But then I asked what Topher was promoting, and since it was the movie Valentine's Day, I thought a nod in that direction was only appropriate.

I knew I didn't want it to be too on the nose--no hearts or cupid or anything like that--but just a little something to give it that Valentine's Day feel.
