Fashion Portrait…Cuni

Shawn Cuni is one of the coolest people you could ever know. I had the pleasure of being his roommate for a while and respect him as a person and a creative. Few people are as neat and organized, and few people have his potential.
Check out his instagram @psjc
and the website on flickr Shawn Cuni

All of that said his street fashion is what we are focusing on today. You might think ‘hipster’ upon meeting him- at least that is what comes to my mind- then you find out his love for PBR and Radiohead and you know that’s probably a good assessment. During a night of chilling on the porch I snapped a few photos and brought them home to paint.



I started this painting by pasting pages from an old book onto hardboard with matte medium.
Then I proceeded to sketch out the basic forms with a colored pencil. After that I go over the lines with waterproof india-ink.
After that dries I pool in washes of watercolor and add highlights with white acrylic paint.
Finally I add shadows and washes of other colors to bring out the form and it’s complete!
