I was growing bored with shooting clean images that do nothing more than show off how photogenic a model is. I want to do something fun and that showed some character and personality and would leave a memorable impression on viewers. I didnt know what to do with Dez but I knew I wanted to utilize my artistic abilities. I wanted to do something special and unique so i decided to do a quick caricature of him on a t-shirt.
Dez has an amazingly unique face so it was easy to render a likeness of him on a t-shirt. I hadn't done anything like this in years and it was a lot of fun. I was so happy when he walked in the door and saw the shirt...it was priceless. It was like seeing a kid's face at Christmas.
Dez loved the shirt so much, time he saw it, he immediately put it on and insisted on keeping it.
(...of course i let him have it. :) )
