I was recently asked by Chris Buzelli to create his portrait for the Society of Illustrators 57th annual. As many of you know, he just wrapped up his year as the annual chairman.
I will be the first to admit that I am not a portrait illustrator, but being that Chris and I go back many years I felt that I couldn’t say no.
His paintings are synonymous with warm, glowing light, his long time role as a teacher at RISD shows that he is willing to share his light with others and the bug wings were just too cool to not include.
