Cover I painted this week for The Weekly Standard. Whew! This was a challenge, 6 people, a bus, 6 sets of hands . . . . a lot to paint in two days. I did my sketching and research on Wednesday and painted a little Wednesday night and then spent all day Thursday and Friday painting. Of course there are things about it that I would have liked to have spent more time with, but for the time given, I'm pleased with the end result. I had a lot of fun with the expressions on this one!

The bus windshield really kicks derriere Jason in addition to all the other elements. I was studying your arrangement to see how my eye moved about the frame. To direct the eye with purpose is a real skill and you have that in abundance.. hard work pays!

Absolutely amazing. Cant believe all that in just two days. I did that Olga Kurylenko painting from a screen capture. I changed up a bunch of things in it though.

Two days?! That would take me two weeks at least. After two decades of practice :)

Quite amazing work Jason!

It must have been a difficult work, Jason, but the result is spectacular. I admire your work, and I'll be waiting your news with Iggy and Gordy. Congratulation, you are a master!
