Heroes 3 and 4- The Two Edwards

I'm starting to think of these pieces less in terms of caricature/portraiture and more as self-contained designs, where no element is subservient to the human element. This shift is largely due to a disastrously ill-conceived first draft of Edward Gorey. Ed Wood, whom I depicted a few days later is admittedly a bit of a mess compositionally, but I'm pleased with my more liberating, experimental conception of his piece. And honestly, how else can one portray his mad genius without being a bit chaotic?
