"NICOLAS" - Commisioned Portrait

This is the progression of a 2-color linocut portrait I was commissioned to create for my friend Nico, (Nicolas Gerard), a gift he was pesenting to his parents in France because he doesn't get to see his family as often as he'd like to. He asked me if I'd be interested in creating a portrait of him in any medium I wanted. Just so happens I've been wanting to work on a 2-color print as I haven't in quite some time. Thanks Nico, the timing couldn't have been better. ;O)
