Self Portraits

Two side by side self portraits from stencils.  I was looking at the work of Shepard Fairey and decided to make a stencil of myself.  The image on the right is taken from the stencil and colored with oil pastels and India Ink (see previous posts).  I stamped repetitive background and colored light and dark rays .  On the left image I repeated the same image but painted over the stencil fleshing it out a bit and added the red "obey" as a shout out to Shepard Fairey who inspired this work.
This is a simple inking of the 2 pc stencil with a message.  I banged this version out in an hour but even though I began to spend hours on each page, I like this piece much better.
