The inspiration for this portrait mosaic
After the great way my Duckingham cartoon character turned out in a previous post, I wanted to do another, just for fun. The boys have watched Jonah 3 or 4 times in the last week, and Patrick keeps asking to see it again.
As far as the image above goes, despite the fact that it was the boys who asked me to do this portrait of two of their favorite TV stars, and also despite the fact that I originally took pictures of the boys on either side of this picture, when Kristina wandered over to see what we were doing, she made a much better pose. Perhaps the boys were still stuck on needing to growl for the Darth Maul picture a couple weeks ago? I dunno. Just that they wouldn’t pose nicely. So, Kristina (and Snoopy) get their five minutes of fame.
