Cover for Exaggerated Features
This year at the ISCA annual convention Glenn Ferguson won the GOLD nosey!
It's tradition in the ISCA that the Gold Nosey winner from the year before, has the honor, and privilege to paint the next Gold Nosey winner. As you know, I won the Gold last year, so it was my pleasure to paint this cover.
The past convention covers of Exaggerated Features were all great, and done well, but I wanted to take it to another level. I thought it would be more fun to honor the Gold Nosey winner by roasting him, or her. This is a great opportunity to be funny, or to "make fun of" . . . like a celebrity roast. After all it is for a caricature organization. My goal was to have some fun with Glenn and JoAnn, in a "brutal yet loving" way . . . I also wanted to give the members of the ISCA something that they would cherish and enjoy, a gift if you will . . . my hope is that they bust a gut laughing when they receive their copy of the magazine.
What makes doing this cover so much fun is knowing that the people getting the magazine all know Glenn and JoAnn. They all know that Glenn worked hard to win that gold nosey, and in the process, he's won 2 silver nosey's and 3 bronze nosey's! Congrats Glenn!
The idea behind the painting:
For those of us who were there and know Glenn, we know that he did in fact, win the Nosey, but that doesn't necessarily mean he gets to have it. No, for time alone with his Nosey, Glenn must perform tricks of sorts and win the approval of his beloved JoAnn. If she is entertained, she may humor the idea of letting him look at his gold nosey!
