Minnie Driver for the Wall Street Journal
posted: May 29, 2007
Ketrina Hoskin at The Wall Street Journal made my week when she called me last Wednesday to do a portrait of Minnie Driver for the weekend paper.
The printed version was black and white and even longer; it was cropped at mid-calf. These long, narrow portraits means coming up with poses that look fluid and natural, but which can't extend horizontally much at all; no elbows jutting out because of hands on hips and that sort of thing. Coming up with poses means a good deal of posturing in front of my mirror.
Working with Ketrina was a dream, as was painting Ms. Driver.
