Time Out New York: Ed Westwick

I was asked to do this week's "Hot Seat" portrait for Time Out New York, the subject this time being actor Ed Westwick, who is a cast member on Gossip Girl.

Not being familiar with Mr. Westwick, I searched around the internet for pics and info on him. I noticed that while he was squeaky clean in his PR shots, he looked much scruffier in more informal pics, so I thought it'd be more interesting to go that route for the portrait.

I knew I wanted to keep it monochromatic, and I think this came out as one of the best Hot Seats I've done in a while. I like the rough gray tones, the messy background, and the squiggly lines for his jewelry. I've already put this one on the "best of Hot Seat" list I have in my head.
