Very, very, very awesome artwork. For some reason I look at it and hear:

"People of the world today
Are you looking for a better way
of life?
Sing it!
We are a part
of the Rhythm Nation!"

I like that you really nailed the expression on this with a limited amount of lines and graphic shapes. You also did something really interesting here by showing depth through texture. I like the pallet too.

I'm sorry but, You give Shepard Ferry to much credit. He didn't invent the vector portrait he just re-popularized it.

oh ya if you want to see a shamless copy of Shepard Ferry check out this portrait I did for my roommate.
