Every once in a great while I will revisit and old illustration, one done years ago, that I have a fondness for, or was particularly proud of at the time. I guess I find it very satisfying to see how far I have come as an illustrator. Looking back is a guilty pleasure. I know it is a mistake to judge oneself this way, its too easy, like picking on someone years younger then you. One should always measure yourself against giants and labor to reach their heights.
That being said, I recently finished this re-imagining of a painting I did some 6 or 7 years ago. It was one of my favorites at the time. And just as the original image was for its time, I think this new version is a high mark for my current art work.
