…Fairmount’s Favorite Son.
…Indiana’s Own.

James Dean.

No other person in Hollywood’s history embodied youth angst and raw sexuality than the Heartland’s own James Byron Dean. Which is precisely the reason why I chose him to be the first of several familiar faces to grace a portrait series I’m calling, “Hoosier Heroes.”

The series will consist of framed black and white images hand-drawn with 6B-grade Graphite and Stump on 11″x14″ drawing paper. James and several other pieces will be available for purchase at the Rocky Ripple Art Fair on Saturday, September 25th.

    Glad you didn’t crack the glass when you tried taking the portrait out of the frame. I think that is what happened to the other one! I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to!!
