Lincoln Impersonator

Marker on Cardstock - 3 x 4 inches  SOLD
For the latest Daily Paintworks Challenge, Raymond Logan is having us honor Lincoln's birthday (a little late) and has made the guidelines quite generous.
He hinted that he was partial to woodcuts. I don't actually have the tools for woodcutting, nor any experience, but I do like doing scratch board type stuff, so that's the approach I took.
With portraiture, if you get the eyes right you're halfway there.
I didn't get the eyes right.

Thanks for taking up my DPW Challenge! So happy to see somebody take up the "D" option. This is a cool piece.
