This (tall poppy syndrome) is a perennial trait of the Australian psyche. So I'm glad (?) others nationalities have it as well. Nice expression on this guy's face too.

Great portrait! Love the expression, texture and colors and painterliness.
I usually cringe at displays of T.P.S.- I def. don't groan audibly as I feel sorry for whomever has it.

relly nice portrait.
beautiful.
The idea (and the caption) that it is all about "excess" does'nt restricts it a bit?
still nice

In addition to enjoying a masterfully done illustration, I learned a new term today. A double treat!

The expression is fantastic.

Congratulations on getting picked.

The style and technique of your piece is reminiscent of the cover art for Jethro Tull's Aqualung.

The name of the artist who did the cover art is Burton Silverman. Is he an influence?
