WOW, Very very impressive, would you be interested in drawing some artwork on a plain white hat by chance? It would be a hat worn for the cover of a cd. Let me know if interested.

It looks terrific in the most positive aception i could possibly pick. Nice work shadowing Bruce's face. The only detail that bugs me is the extreme vertical assimetry of the eyes; it's too noticeable.
