Also purchase a bigger jpg version to see how it is made.

I have always loved Bob Marley. Jah bless!

This is a digital work. I applied each circle individually on a black background.

Let's call this "digital circlism". This is really a time consuming technique...

Important note: This portrait is sold illegally on t-shirts in many shops in Asia
and in South America... If you support my work, do not buy these shirts.

i am a reggae fan since i saw him live in 79 - i wasn't prepaired for the intensity of his performance and it was a kind of shock for me, haha... i have played in several reggae bands since the early 80s and right now i am in a strictly reggae influenced hippie percussion/all sorts band... :D

Hey I wanted to let you know that this website: [link] has stolen quite a bit of artwork from DA and are selling it. The reason I am telling you this is because this particular picture I recognized on there. I just figured I would let you know.
