A Ross Painting March 29, 2011

So one day Aaron Ross strolled into the OTX office and asked if I would paint a picture of what I thought was going on in his brain. Keep in mind this was like 2 days after he walked in the office and said he wanted to jump down a set of stairs with 50 gallon drums of orange soda exploding underneath him. It was too good to pass up.

The soda thing actually happened. And so eventually I got working on the painting.

Walter Pieringer was kind enough to shoot a awesome sillouette photo of Aaron for me to start with. This is from when Aaron was rocking a pretty decent beard.

I made a little assembly line type thing in his head with bunnies hard at work spitting out his world famous tweets.

Thank goodness Aaron has a good enough sense of humor to appreciate this all!
