So I’m calling today a “2”-day.
Why, you ask?
Well, because it’s March 6, 2012… 3 (March) x 2 = 6, and 6 x 2 = 12! Hey!
And I use this arbitrary bit of arithmatic silliness as my flimsy excuse to share with you, my lovely and faithful readers, these portraits I made of each of my (one, two) children. Portraits that I made inspired by a notion to in some accessible and visual (and, one hopes, humorous manner) to each of them that — at least in my view — they’re both epically powerful people.
And really in all honesty this came about because there’s a picture from a while back of my son where his face happens to remind me uncannily of a certain shot of a statue of Augustus. Yes, THAT Augustus. So a little image manipulation later, et viola!
And basically, all that aside, these pictures, man…they make me smile and laugh every single time I see them.
Coda: I showed them to the kids and they loved them; but my son requested that I add a beard to his statued visage. And so I did. Enjoy!
