"It's an arresting portrait. There's an interesting interplay between digital and traditional techniques and the addition of white lines make me ask questions and consider the artist's intentions. The fact that the subject/sitter is wearing a simple sweatshirt rather than something more complicated really layers a youth element to the image - it feels fresh when it could easily have looked much more traditional in an old-fashioned way."
