What a beaut! You are very talented.

Wow John, you did some exquisite work on this. The detail on the folds in his shirt are pretty darn spiffy, not to mention the great texture you captured in his hair. Wow!

Oh this is just fab! I have a friend who LOVES the Wolf Man, I'll have to send him over here to see this! Great work!

Your collages always make me jealous with their total perfectness! Love this one and can't wait to see the rest. Looks like a fun month ahead!

Thanks, everyone. I'll be sharing some duds as well. As my friend Tom said when he heard I was doing this: "I'm sure your first seven will be great."

I'll also be showing a few older ones, which don't hold up to the new stuff. But, I realized months ago that there was no way I'd be able to finish 31. I still have three to do.

Wow!! This is an amazing piece of work. I can't believe you're able to create this kind of detail and evoke a mood, vitality and lighting as a collage. I love the sky behind him and the texture in his hair.
