After doing superhero portraits of SUU President Scott Wyatt and Provost Brad Cook, President Wyatt requested that I do one of our new finance VP, Marvin Dodge. At the time I didn't know Marvin really well, and I like to have a good sense of the people so I can pick a suitable hero. One day I noticed Marvin having lunch on campus by himself, so I just sat down and struck up a conversation with him. I'm sure he thought it was a little strange. I small talked him until the idea for Hawkeye clicked. I thought about doing him David Aja style, but I ended up going with the Avengers movie version of the costume, since I'm more sure that Marvin is aware of that one.
In any case, what's more perfect hero for a CFO than hero with impeccable aim?
President Wyatt said he's going to print all three pictures and hang them in the President's office suite on campus. Boom!
