Omar Rayyan’s MicroVisions

Say hello to Omar Rayyan’s MicroVision, “Hopalong Galahad.”

Omar‘s work has a lightness and humor that makes it impossible not to smile when you see it. It’s easy to see how charming and witty it is — and it's easy to forget all the backbreaking hard work that goes into honing that kind of grace in paint. Just the way it should be.

I love this piece. The illustration is lively and charming. I'd love to know what kind of paint Omar used. It looks like water color but it's opaque looking. And also how he tackled the piece.

Omar did the painting in watercolor, he tackled it with a modicum of good scotch and very little sleep

Having partied with Omar I can attest to his love of good scotch and hatred of sleep.....
