Good Morning, Mr. Anderson….......... As you can see, we’ve had our eye on you for some time now…........ Mr. Anderson.

I still love The Matrix – more for Hugo Weaving’s roll than any other. Agent Smith is a TRUE Bad-Ass!

So, for the last couple of weeks whenever I would have a spare second or so I worked on and designed this pattern – using Picture 6 as inspiration, of course.

The hardest part was the earpiece and the damned curly cable – I really wanted to get that particular piece correct. Why? I don’t know – I just did.

Anyway…....... The wood is curly maple plywood and is 1/8” thick. It measures approx 7.5” x 8.5” and features two complete likenesses of our adorable Agent. Twice the cutting – Twice the fun!

Finish is a deep soaking in lemon oil and backing with thick felt.

I now have another portrait for my “Bad-Ass Wall of Fame”. Take a browse of my previous cuttings for more members.

Oh yeah – my favorite quote of Smith’s has to be: “I hate this place. This zoo. This prison. This reality, whatever you want to call it, I can’t stand it any longer. It’s the smell, if there is such a thing. I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink and every time I do, I fear that I’ve somehow been infected by it. “

That is SO Descriptive!

Spot on, Bob. The brow and the mouth make this character and you’ve captured them perfectly.

This is great! I agree, Smith was a true bad-ass; I had a friend with the last name of Anderson; every time someone addressed him as Mr. Anderson I had a silent chuckle.
