Bertillonism

18 May

My dream is to be able to rough out a convincing portrait of somebody in a half-hour or 45 minutes, before sitting still gets tedious. (Note to self: Hey, maybe set up a video screen and show someone a movie to make sitting still easier!) Until then, I’m having a great time finding inspiration for moon faces in the old rogues galleries of early 20th century law enforcement, especially simultaneous profile and mug-shot exposures.
