I had wanted to do something special for my boyfriend of three years for his birthday, which happens to be right after Christmas. Unfortunately, I have a problem with being a little too generous on certain holidays, and so I would break the bank when shopping for him. I decided, instead of spending a few hundred dollars or more, I would use my art skills to make a collage of different portraits of him. They are all stylized in different ways, so none of them look the same. This is one of the first portraits I did of him and even though it’s not perfect, it’s from the heart.
