FORBES SKETCH 1991
FORBES SKETCH 1991

FORBES SKETCH 1991 is an analog photo collage shot on color negative film and assembled from 1-Hour Photo prints. It is a preliminary sketch for Poolside With Bush, part of a series of parody artworks representing then POTUS George H. W. Bush, commissioned by Forbes Magazine / Isley Design, and published in 1991. I was asked to parody the photo style of David Hockney (it’s a long story… stay tuned!) For the sketch and the final art, I used family members, cousins and friends as models, including my father as George(!)
