The Man Whose Head Expanded

I normally try to stay away from portraits of rock stars, writers, artists, and other famous people I admire. There's just too much baggage involved in hero worship. I had to make an exception for Mark E. Smith, longtime evil genius behind The Fall. The man has a face like no other. Granted, many of the distinctive features of his face are the result of decades of rampant alcoholism that should not be imitated or romanticized. And yet, despite all this, the man still managed to make "Hex Enduction Hour" and "This Nation's Saving Grace." The mind reels.
