Celebrities artist statement

The portrait of the celebrity is the most exposing exhibition of art.  

There's so much risk; if i don't make this portrait look exactly like that person, then, I'm a no good artist that is trying to blow up with gimmicky- kitsch- pseudo pop art.  That's a label that no one can come back from.  The other risk that comes to mind is if I make the image look too much like the artist, then the "art" I've created gets over shadowed by the depiction of the celebrity.  

The reward; we will see what the reward could be...
