A while back I caught Texas governor Rick Perry on the Daily Show. With his great hair, ruggedly weathered face and easy, smooth smile I thought that if I were ever to cast the role of Satan for a movie, this gentleman would be my first call. So imagine my delight when Mark Hogue from the Dallas Morning News called a few weeks later to ask if I’d whip up a portrait of the man they named Texan of the Year….Governor Rick Perry.
Michael explained that Perry is either a love him or hate him kind of guy, but they’d rather not have an obvious editorial slant in the picture. I’m hoping that I was subtle enough.
