Portrait of Marlon Brando as Don Corleone

Growing up in an Italian family from New York The Godfather was almost as sacred as The Baltimore Catechism. I remember watching this as a child and, excepting the criminal behavior, seeing the similarities between these actors on screen and my Italian-immigrant relatives.

It was only later, in my teens, that I read Mario Puzo’s famous book and really began to love the craft of storytelling; both the literature as well as the masterful film and performances like Marlon Brando’s who brought the Don to life. 

These portraits were created using Adobe Illustrator, Corel Painter, and Adobe Photoshop.
