Artist Heather Morris doesn't stick to traditional mediums for her pop culture portraiture. Instead of only using watercolors or acrylic paints, she sometimes adds elements to make her images look vintage. She told me she incorporates "rust, metal leaf, and special paint concoctions to make the paint crack and flake." The inclusion of these extras give many of her pieces added grunge, texture, and depth.
Of course after talking about Heather's mixed media work, I'm going to share a more straightforward piece first because, hey, it's Matt the Radar Tech.

And I'm guessing some of you recognize the guy in this art: Chris Hardwick!

I've heard of him.
