here). Really exciting to see my work in such a well known publication. The job went really well and I'm hopeful it might be the first of many. I probably stayed a bit safe with this, not being too sure what they might want from me. Could've exaggerated a lot more, but I'm happy with the likeness (although I'm not very familiar with the subject) and most importantly the WSJ were very happy. Pleased with the pose and values also, could perhaps have gone further with detail but I didn't want it to look too photoreal.

The Skeptic Magazine to see if they might want to use it if they were doing a piece on Hitch any time, and they thought it good enough to be the next cover. It needed a fair amount of work (in fact it probably still does if I'm honest), mainly to fit the magazine cover layout, but now I'm pretty pleased with how it looks :) If anyone would like an A3 print of the painting I'll make them to order for £15.00 inc p&p, so just send me an e-mail if you'd like to get a copy.
