Jasper Johns is one of my favorite artists, and I often fell asleep trying to come up with some kind of a pun for him. The only one I could think of was more of a family thing... my cat growing up was named Jasper.

Needless to say, I didn't end up doing a target/flag/encaustic wax portrait of my cat Jasper. Instead I went with long "Johns" - also, I couldn't afford to buy all of the encaustic equipment necessary for just one piece of artwork, so I instead used artists acrylic medium, and a lot of improvisation to get the encaustic texture I wanted.
