More art for my first retrospective book with Titan Publishers.
This portrait of Vivienne Flesher (graphite, acrylic, oil, on board) was part of one of my first journalistic assignments I initiated upon moving to NYC in 1983. The concept was to create a series of portraits of up and coming illustrators living in the city. It was a way to meet more illustrators like myself and also expand the breadth of my portfolio. When the series was finished a year later, Print Magazine published all ten artist’s portraits in an article called, Peer Portraits.
More of this series will be seen in, The Art of Greg Spalenka: Visions from the Mind’s Eye to be released in July 2014, at the San Diego Comic Con.
