Benjamin Linus, bug-eyed and sneaky

Agreed, totally. Here's a portrait of "Henry Gale" I did a few years ago. I've been looking for an excuse to post it here, and your comment will do. Thanx.

For the record and lest I get any undeserved credit, this is not a drawing or painting - it is a downloaded photo manupulated with several filters in Photoshop. Apply "watercolor", then fade back to a subtle 10-20% and repeat with various other filters and color adjustments.
I like the scruffy scabrous appearance, but it's Emerson's expression that really makes this pop.
My favorite version of Gale/Linus, other than hotel intruding black trenchcoat Double-Oh-Ben from TSOTTC, is when his tousled hair is sticking up all random, giving him a incongrous frightened, confused and startled appearance. Benjamin Linus, Alton Brown and Stan Laurel, seperated at birth.
