Godfather Photo Mosaic

I was blessed to be asked to be the Godfather of my nephew Nico. It’s a big deal and an honor to be asked. Now I can wear my pinky ring! Just kidding! It doesn’t fit me any more :(.

My brother gifted me a frame with a nicely matted photo of Marlon Brando and Al Pacino with the title “The God Father” at the bottom and top.


The matted image I received from my brother

I really loved it! I am a huge fan of the movies. I even took a self portrait (and you can read about it in the link) of myself in a tuxedo with cigar in hand in the Godfather film motif soon after Nico was born!

So back to the frame my brother gave me. I thought about replacing the Brando/Pacino photo with the self-portrait photo. But I felt it would lack something. Then I came up with the idea of incorporating my Godson Nico into it.

Since we are separated by 700 miles, I’ve been able to keep up with his growing up via photos – either via text or on social media. I began saving those photos – all of them because I knew I’d want to do something with them. So when I received this matted and framed photo from my brother, it clicked in my head that I make a photo mosaic out of it. Here it is.

GodFather Joe-Mosaic

A photo mosaic self-portrait I created that contains photos of my godson over the course of his first year. You’ll need to click on the image to see its full resolution.

Here is the image, matted, in the frame.

I plan to detail how I created the actual photo mosaic in a future post. Let me know what you think of it!
