My Mean Face

My Mean Face

I've found it fascinating for quite some time that by far my most popular image on flickr is the the one above featuring "my mean face". This image has been viewed over 5,000 times, well above any nature image, or beautiful child portrait that so much of my stream features.

Truth be told, I'm kind of partial to it myself. I'm really not a mean person, but the image kind of captured that spark of rage that we all possess somewhere inside of us (some of us just hold it deeper inside I think).

Anyways, the real reason I'm posting about this is that the other day I got an interesting request on flickr. A graphic design artist contacted me asking for permission to display in her portfolio a print work art piece that contained my image. Being a lover of art I agreed right away. I must admit, I've always had a strange curiosity of how an artist would interpret one of my self portrait images as well.

Anyways, without further ado, here's the work of art featuring my ugly mug by an artist who goes by monasita and entitled "ill give you love":

Pretty cool huh?
