Christopher Hitchens


Here's a quick piece I did about noted atheist, Christopher Hitchens. Having been an outspoken proponent of non-religious based morality, he's getting more news attention after having been diagnosed with in-operable cancer (from smoking). I wanted to depict him in a way that connected his appearance with that of the universe - present yet intangible. It also gave me a good excuse to work on my edges. His body is presented in stark contrast to the playful, childlike representation of angels and heaven - a fantasy to him. I didn't quite get the likeness - his iconic locks gone from chemotherapy. Here's to you, Christopher Hitchens.
