A telling portrait?

with 2 comments

I’m currently hooked like a devil on The Passage by the US author Justin Cronin. The book is basically about the apocalypse, hardcore ultra-violent zombie vampires, fragile humanity, courageous last stands etc and reads at a fast paced fashion which is probably akin to popping crack into one’s mouth like popcorn at machine gun speed. It is absolutely A-MAZING.

The author also had a portrait shoot which produced the below, which seems to have rendered him less bookish author more Ralph Lauren styled outback adventurer. Maybe he fights bears and chops wood behind his log cabin in a really clean-cut/wholesome kinda fashion?  (I think it must be the rocks and the leather jacket – killer combo)

I Googled some more of his portraits to see if they shed light on his character:

Well I can confirm that he does like books, working from home, and casual suits.

Wow, portraits. It’s like almost being a spy.

  1. Very funny Max! I see your stalking brought unexpectedly boring set of portraits of a man who writes such invigorating literature. Perhaps you should correct that. The first one is clearly styled after Top Gun. And the suit in the second and last photo seems to be the same. I suspect its because he only wears it on a occasion of a photo shoot and otherwise fights bears, vampires and occasionally swaps duties with a Spider Man.

  2. Ha ha! Maybe I’ll send him an e-mail and let him know that he can do better. Do you have any clothing/prop ideas to suggest? 😉
