New Print: Jean-Luc Godard

So here's my latest print, a portrait of the great French film director Jean-Luc Godard. You can buy it here.

You'll see it's a bit different than my other portraits. Where usually I've used pen and ink with a lot of ink wash, here the line is more definite with halftones doing the work of the wash for tone.

Like a lot of people my understanding of Godard's work began in the 1980s when Channel 4 in the UK screened many of his films late at night over the course of a few weeks. These weren't just his more palatable classics like À bout de souffle but some of the more difficult 1970s stuff like Number Two. And later in the 1980s I rented Week-end from the local video shop and was utterly fascinated by it. Godard's work is never comfortable, even in the comfortable bits, and that's a very good thing.
