Jacsimile | Oil on Canvas | 18×24
The artwork is entitled “Jacsimile” as a play-on-words: a facsimile is an exact copy of something. As the painting is a portrait of the artist’s longtime friend Jack (and the core of the artist’s sense of humor is bad puns), it was dubbed as a Jack-simile, or simply Jacksimile.
