Sam in Hat

"A picture of my friend Sam. Use whatever style you think fits it best!"

My first thought was to go Ralph Steadman to get the Hunter S. Thompson feel. Then I spent a little more time with the photograph. I began to like the way it was framed. Sam is almost emerging out of the corner.

Passed through the sketch-it filter, Sam is now a series of whispy black brush strokes that assemble themselves into his likeness. Kind of like that Madonna video where a flock of black birds clusters together and becomes Madonna.
