This is a work-in-progress portrait I've been working on. I'm not overly happy with his ear or the fact I've seemingly turned our Stanley into a hipster. It's a bit cleaner than some of my other portraits as I want to turn it into a linocut print in the next week or so. My initial plan was to include the quote below as part of the linocut but having spent about three hours cutting out three words of text on another project I'm not sure I have the required time or inclination.
"The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death — however mutable man may be able to make them — our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light."
