Actually, the first thing that came to mind was.... Neil Young... And the way he looks now, when he is performing...
here is a link and picture of Neil Now..
A fellow Canadian, I'm sure very complex as is Alex..

Complexity for a complex man...

Maybe this is the reason we did not get Jacob's Ladder? Maybe the modern fingers can only do so much with the older material just as Ged can only sing so much of the same. You can be mad about the ommisions, but age triumphs over ability every time. We got 'The Camera Eye' and Clockwork Angels and glories from 80's past and a possible promise for the future after a stint of well deserved rest. Then this portrait. Should we really ask for more? I for one hope for the future while not worrying about the past.

Looks like he got punched in the side of his face (see the knuckle prints) and this is why it is so distorted. Who knows?? He is a silly man but you gotta love him.

I have a feeling Alex took a selfie using either a Macbook or iPad with the program Photobooth, applied one of the program filters, then recreated the selfie on canvas. Or maybe he had a dream and this was the result.

jupe - OMG...i just checked out the Proclaimers video on youtube for old times sake, and you ain't kidding about that resemblance!
#14 - Posted 10/24/13 @10:04AM by kjbird [contact]

Agree with #11 - well stated.
#13 - Posted 10/24/13 @10:03AM by kjbird [contact]

I'm gonna be (500 miles).....catchy tune from back in the day ;)
#12 - Posted 10/24/13 @9:59AM by jupeguyowensound [contact]

At first glance it reminded me of Al Franken/Gary Busey/The brothers from "The Proclaimers".

Ha ha number 9! Yes, that mirror never lies.

I am not an artist, nor an aficionado of artwork, but this is actually very good because Alex has clearly portrayed a certain vision of himself which appears to be a combination of 'I'm a bit goofy, a big kid, and a little older and creakier than I used to be'.

We all see different things in art, and it takes a LOT of skill to create something that says different things to others. Well done Lerxst, it is your first masterpiece!!
