"I've decided what to do with my life. I wanna be a cleaner." – Léon: The Professional (1994)
A portrait on display at my cinema-inspired solo show MOMENTS, which opened June 7th at NYC's Bottleneck Gallery.
Léon is one of my absolute favorite movies and it is Natalie Portman's breakout role (and most interesting performance, IMO), so if you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend it! Jean Reno is also incredible in it. Digital painting from references sta.sh/01qltg7kj34t, Adobe Photoshop + Cintiq 21UX tablet.

Another film I've wanted to watch for ages. I heard it's very very good, Portman absolutely brilliant. I wouldn't pick that as the quote, I'd pick 'The rifle is the first weapon you learn how to use, because it lets you keep your distance from the client. The closer you get to being a pro, the closer you can get to the client' A bit long but still.
So good. The painting and the movie. I cannnot tell you how many times Ihave watched this movie, and even then, I regret a 'certain' person's death. I so wished he lived... sadly it was part of the story. I wish I could be at your show... It is today. I hope it goes spectacularly.
