dstaffo Very small detail of a #wip . This is part of the big project that I can't reveal more about until October. I still have more details and layers to add, but I kind of like it at this stage and want a record of it. I'm trying hard not to overwork it or tighten it up too much. #portraitillustration #painting 6d

dstaffo I started this portrait of Tilda Swinton as a promo piece a few years back and shoved it in a drawer because I couldn't get the likeness. Twice, I've rediscovered it and gone back into it, but I'm never happy with it. I just found it again last night, but I'm too busy with other projects to try again right now. Maybe someday I'll actually finish it...or maybe not. #tildaswinton #portraitillustration #abandonedartwork 3w

dstaffo One of my earliest portrait jobs as a baby illustrator right out of school was this commission of Prince for the Baltimore City Paper. 12 years later and my work looks different, but my adoration for the one and only Prince hasn't changed. #ripprince #princeillustration #purplerainforever 1mon

dstaffo Hey @jmwillustration, guess what's part of my collection now, too. @jessewturnbull is the best scavenger - he found it for $3 at a library sale this afternoon. 1mon

dstaffo I found this flower growing by its lonesome in our backyard. It looks like maybe it's a type of daffodil/narcissus, but does anyone know what kind? If so, does it normally have a double head like this? Side question - is there a good app for identifying plants, flowers, and trees? #firstspringinourhome #mysteryflowers #daffodil #narcissus #doubleheadeddaffodil 1mon
