Canadian Stamp News

Recently, the website Canadian Stamp News, posted a story about the historical achievements of late Canadian Prime Minister Lester B Pearson. Among some of these stories were his contributions to the development of a redesigned Canadian flag and his image used on Canada Post stamps, one of which featured my portrait of Pearson for the Millennium Collection that was released in 2000. This is not a great copy of the stamp image but it certainly gives you a good idea of a more controlled style of my work for this usage and time in my career. I don't work like this at all any more. Very interesting and lengthy process involved in this project, not just because of the likeness of Pearson’s face that I needed to focus on, but the very rigid approval process in choosing the best image of perhaps a dozen sketches that I pitched. The original painting hangs in my brother’s law office.
