I have been at this (hot and heavy) since before Christmas. I gotta explain why I chose to do Jim Henson as my first ever actual portrait. I have always been a Henson fan but when he featured David Bowie in a full length movie, that put me over the edge. Think about this: What kind of nutter thinks they can puppet for a living? As a young man, what do you think his friends and fam thought when he probably talked about his ambitions? Serious props to this guy.
Now I know you shouldn't judge a muppet by the color of his fur but I am biased when it comes to blue and green. Besides that, I just think it is cool to add a glass beaker! Yunk yunk. I hope to finish a video of this shortly. Fingers crossed.
I have been criticized for my philosophies but I am finding more often than not that the people that I admire have the same thinking. Just google Henson quotes and you could learn a lot. I'll leave you with his most famous. "Life's like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending." Amen, Jim! I'll do just that.
