angela elledge with a zebra cloak

This is an ink wash and graphite drawing I did for the different strokes from different folks year end portrait exchange. Angela painted a picture of me and I drew a picture of her; I took quite a bit of artistic license in my interpretation, hopefully she won't mind. If you'd like to take a look at the portrait she did of me, you can find it here: Angela Elledge.


  1. This is so cool! I just love it. Great job!! Akiko

  2. I think you did an awesome job. Too bad folks can't see it all the DSFDF blog. I'm giving you the Blue Ribbon for best original portrait!

  3. So original and creative, I am sure Angela with love it!

  4. Hello Dan,
    Hey that's me with a Zebra on my head! I recently posted a self-portrait using the same photo that you used and I have to say it never occurred to me to think "outside the box".

    It's funny that you should take this direction because I have been extremely busy with commissions of people's pets...mostly dogs, a couple of people portraits, a horse, and believe it or not a pet goat. With that being said, for many, many months I have thought of nothing else except the work/deadlines and responsibility of getting this work completed on time! How interesting that you chose to illustrate me with the "weight" I've been carrying, although I like your interpretation much better! Great job with a most original and creative concept; Sheila is right, you deserve a blue ribbon.

    I look forward to seeing more work from you in 2010. I wish you a very Happy New Year!
