Cone Man gets a portrait

In centuries past, the homes of the wealthy often sported portraits of their owners.  We're not into that, but Cone Man is, so now this portrait, courtesy of artist Nathan Bode, adorns the garage wall in front of where I park.

I like the way it captures the spirit of Cone Man, who is too much his own cone to let any frame contain him.  (The stuff below and to the right of the frame is unrelated garage wall art.)

I also like the way Nathan captured Cone Man's rugged, outdoorsman spirit while at the same time making him appear considerably less ragged than he really is.

I have not, though, had a chance to ask Nathan a key question:  is the frame just a frame, or is it a hint of the other-dimensional travel capabilities Cone Man possesses, capabilities that have led him to try more than once to conquer our world with creatures from the dark beyond?

I may well be better off not knowing.
