What happened to cash is king? I don't see a bright future for hard cold cash... not long ago it would have been unthinkable for a business to deny cash payments. Many self-serve checkouts don't allow you to use "CASH" as payment for groceries. I got a disappointed look from the store manager the other day when I missed his handwritten sign stating that they didn't accept cash... I inserted the cash.  No Sale.. No Acceptance. The manager typed in a code.... the machine spit the cash back out.   I had to choose other payment option.   I should have chosen another store, but then they are all like this now.

A very Happy New Year to all The first thing I notice about the new date is how much easier it is to type than 2019. It's a good start to a brand new decade. Thank you for this past years' correspondence on DeviantArt. I find this forum to be consistently one of the best art social media forums online. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Greg

Your portraits are amazing. Not only are they very similar, you also captured the essence and spirit of those people.

Your sketches look so real. You have an amazing gallery

I must say, your portaits are very phenomenal and realistic! Have you ever considered drawing Axl Rose or Kurt Cobain?

Thank you very much... I will probably draw them at some point. I do drawings a lot of times by birth date so I can do a variety of people I might not have done otherwise.

Ah that sounds very dope! Heck, when you said Birthdate i was reflecting on zodiac signs based on celebs that i dol the most.


Mr.Bean - Capricorn

Axl Rose - Aquarius

Kurt Cobain - Pisces

Jackie Chan - Aries

Krist Novoselic - Taurus

Naomi Campbell - Gemini

Will Ferell - Cancer

Slash - Leo

Michael Jackson - Virgo

Simon Cowell - Libra

Gordon Ramsay - Scorpio

Bruce Lee - Sagittarius

Ive done several of those... Gordon Ramsay, Bruce Lee, Will Ferrell, Jackie Chan, Mr.Bean
