I posted an old James Joyce portrait sketch for Bloomsday a couple of days ago and today decided to rework it as a vector graphic. This is the result. I was producing a lot of sketches like this while working on Reverbstorm a decade ago, most of them post-Picasso/Bauhaus/De Stijl variations. Joyce is particularly easy to render in a semi-abstract form on account of his distinctive features and apparel: hat, glasses, nose, moustache and bow tie. The Reverbstorm series is still in the process of being reworked as a single volume so this will probably find a home there.
