The US sit-com, Parks and Recreation is probably my favourite sit-com of the last ten years. Carpentry loving, meat devouring and job hating, liberatarian Parks Director, Ron Swanson is my favourite character from the show - and a true, modern day comedy icon. Ron is brilliantly played by Nick Offerman and my portrait is meant to evoke the kind of photo you'd see hung up on a council building wall - all brown and grey, and serious and stern. I brought a touch of collage to Ron's tie by slicing up some images of beef as I wanted to reference his love of meat. I may do a follow up piece where he's eating a breakfast buffet or at work in his carpentry studio. Watch this space.
