CEDELLA MARLEY BOOKER AT 19. No photos exist of Cedella, the mother of Bob Marley, in her teens when he was born.
D'Lynn Waldron's age-regressed digitally hand-painted portrait was in the 2013 BAFTA nominated film Marley.
This image is D'Lynn Waldron's totally original, age-regressed portrait of Bob Marley's mother at the age she was when he was born.
This required my research and forensic analysis of the existing photos of Cedella much later in life and D'Lynn's skills as a conventionally trained portrait artist.
D'Lynn researched and painted five different hair and headscarf styles from that era in Jamaica, so there would be a choice for the movie.
An imaginary portrait of the baby of Steffi Graff and Andre Agassi was commissioned by German Sat 1 TV in 2000, and looked almost exactly like the actual baby born years later.
Age-progressed portraits showing a teenager's future with and without meth addiction. Commissioned by CBS/Paramount.

My Most Wanted Whitey Bulger work for the FBI, along with an age progressed portrait, included a complete analysis of everything they had on his and his girlfriend's history, health and life style. I sent them out to get additional information including the data on his woman companion which led to her being recognized and his capture.
I was doing Bulger as my prototype design of graphically based website for locating fugitives which presented the information visually in categories that got every more specific, in a 'treasure hunt' for the reward.
I appreciate people's interest in my work, but I do not have time to take private commissions.
