Portrait: Dolly Parton

I wanted to do a portrait of Dolly Parton because I adore her completely. I  admire her charm, wit, talent and values. Scroll down to watch the illustration in motion.

I love bringing my illustrations to life through motion. I want my audience to have an experience with my art. I call these “Illustration Animations” rather than live drawings since they’re not drawn live. They only appear like time lapse or speed drawings, but they’re actually frame-by-frame animations where I mask the art little by little and set it to music. For me, buying art isn’t just about acquiring a product. It’s about having an experience.
