Awesome Gentleman

I like using black and white images with just a touch of colour, whether its lipstick or a woodgrain hat.
ADFD has a challenge - use wood - and because I like doing things out of context or with a surprise element, I made his hat wooden (not that he's a blockhead or anything!), and went for manly textures and colours:  chocolate brown and rust colours, animal skin and linen, and of course woodgrain.
