The Daredevil Project: the man behind the mask

It is Matt Murdock that draws many of us to Daredevil. Over the years we have gotten to know this very human hero very well.

In all these portraits of Matt Murdock, I used a single variegated color spool of Sulky thread that I don’t remember the number of, just that I call it “Matt Murdock’s Hair”. I had to watch the thread unspooling to make the shades come out in the right spot.
