Confederacy of Dunces - Ignatius meets Dorian Greene
This is my second attempt at Ignatius (previously on mattdawson blog...) as I really wanted to have a go at showing him in his Paradise Vendors role. I'm pretty happy with Ignatius but I think Dorian would require a little work to refine things. At present I'm still somewhat in 'gameshow host' territory. I've taken some small liberties with the staging of the characters, deviating slightly from the book's account. I also tweeked costumes slightly for clarity. The railings and flagstones are based on photo reference of the actual location described in the book (Pirate Alley in New Orleans)... thank you google images. I had fun with it all, though I think I went too far by adding the wristwatch at such a small scale... just couldn't resist.
