I asked Seth Minkin to tell us a bit about how he approached the challenge of rendering Manju. “The story behind the Manju portrait is similar to most pet portraits that I do- People love their pets! My friend Alex also happens to be a big pug fan in general. Four or five years ago, He requested that I meet Manju and discuss the commission. Upon meeting her, I could tell instantly that I would have no problem creating a great painting. She had so much personality and such a great look. Sometimes, a client can request a subject that may be challenging from my perspective because my end goal is always to create bold and exciting art. I like these challenges.”
Tomorrow we will host the watch that Alex commissioned Jeffrey to create.
