@jake_3r8 as The Man Who Laughs as a child. The Man Who Laughs is a 1926 silent film starring Conrad Veidt as the deformed man now playing a travelling clown. As a child, Gypsies got hold of him and carved a hideous smile upon his face so he would forever laugh at his father. I used a selfie I his and a few other refrences to make Jake look more like the movie “monster”. #silentfilm #themanwholaughs #commission #popart #watercolor #painting #conradvedit #thejoker #story #toronto #portrait #caricature
