Japanese American Gothic

For the past two years, weโ€™ve been doing Secret Santa at our meltmedia holiday party. I love giving personalized gifts so I decided Iโ€™d create custom artwork for whoever I pick. This year, I picked Naomi. He and another coworker, Ben, are great friends who love each other and bicker like an old married couple. I thought itโ€™d be funny to put the two of them in Grant Woodโ€™s famous American Gothic. I think he really liked it and it reminded me that I need to paint more just for fun.
