This personal artwork is a bit different to my other artworks but it was a concept I had in mind since a long time: to represent "GNU/Linux" in a portrait. On left, you can see Richard Stallman -the funder of the GNU Project and the free software movement- and on right you can see Linus Torvalds -creator and lead developer of the Linux kernel-. Both portrait are overlaid with the GNU license on left, and kernel code on right. They both are my personal heroes and big inspiration. I hope one day I'll be able to meet them.

Work in progress of the painting:
(because I received often the same question about this artwork: is this a derivation of photos or a painting done from scratch? Now you have a proof it was painted from scratch. Here are the original photos I used as references on my second monitor while painting.)
