I had the inspiration for this greeting card in vintage Coca-Cola advertising posters. And Whitey Orinoco (Wally Torta) was chosen for Santa character.

Portrait Revolution

It has been a great satisfaction and recognition for me that two of my works have been published in the book "Portrait Revolution".

To express this great pride that I feel, I must explain that this book, which has sold thousands of copies around the world, is a reference and undoubtedly one of the best publications around the genre of contemporary portrait, as this opinion is supported by the art critic and press; Library Journal, Artists & Illustrators, ...

The book features 450 portraits (chosen from more than 50,000 works) of 200 members of JKPP (Julia Kay Portrait Party), an international community of online artists created 9 years ago.

The book is organized into sections on portraits in different media, styles and themes.
