Portrait of a friend.
This is a portrait of a very good college and art friend, Alex Bastian. Often spending free time creating artwork together, he was a good friend for many years while Andrew lived in Pittsburgh. Andrew decided to create an image of him to challenge his style against an image of someone else. It was an experiment in his early years with scratchboard and this particular style. Alex Bastian is also credited as the person to introduce Andrew to the medium of scratchboard, offering Andrew several sheets of scratchboard paper when he had no supplies to create artwork on.
Beautifully thoughtful. Portrait of Alex Bastian is available for purchase at our Shop.
