Readers of this blog know that I am a big fan of Michel Gondry. I wrote a little entry a bit back about his director series DVD at: http://www.mikeandsophia.com/2009/01/motion-sick-work-of-director-michel.html
So, when I found out that he decided to do a whole series of portraits, I decided that I would kill (or at least maim) anyone in my way of getting him to do a drawing of me. Well, my aggressive determination (and just luck) paid off! Michel Gondry has drawn me as part of his portraits series. He is posting them at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/michelgondry/sets/72157618412299993/show/. Mine is not yet included there, though I imagine it will be someday.
I submitted this photo taken at the WBCN Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble at The Middle East by Kelly Davidson: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kellydavidson/3426718501/in/set-72157616557566396/ as the inspiration.
In addition to the drawing being really cool anyway, there are two interesting and/or wonderful things about the drawing:
1. Lots of product placement: we’ve got Fender, WBCN, and The Middle East all receiving some ink time.
2. Travis has awesome hair and an awesome beard. I think he should grow his hair and beard to match this rendition.
