Argos has made life difficult for Santa this year.
A local store called Argos produced a stunning Christmas Ad featuring a dad and daughter drumming up a storm to the Simple Minds song: Don’t You Forget About Me”. Needless to say Argos (or Santa) moved a lot of mini drum kits this Festive Season. Not so sure the parents are as delighted as the kids! 😉
Groucho was one of the Marx Brothers. They were a comedic trio that delighted audiences in the early days of cinema. What amazes me is how distinctive and enduring his persona was. I suspect he somehow tapped into an archetype that we all recognise. Or maybe it was just the eyes, or the hair, or the moustache. Yep, that moustache is unforgettable!
Tom Selleck of Magum PI is almost today’s Movember moustache doodle.
So close but no cigar! What is it that makes a face distinguishable? This caricature of a younger Tom Selleck feels close but somehow not Tom Selleck. I shall have to try again sometime, but today is going to be a busy one so I must leave it like it is.
Check out my promotional cartoon for ST Woodworks.
I have just completed this cool caricature of Shane Tennent for ST Woodworks. Caricatures are mostly wacky, cynical affairs, but it’s preferable to have attractive, fit, healthy people to show in a positive light! 😉
Cartoon depictions of peoples faces are tricky because we’re so invested in our personal identities. Particularly if you make yourself a brand. A promotional caricature must therefore be more positive in nature.
I had a lot of fun doing this because my client was responsive and enthusiastic about my work. That always brings the best out in an artist. I hope it’s evident! 😀
I have done lots of caricatures for business and personal use. This artwork and other caricatures are here in my gallery. Go check them out!
The first time I heard Bohemian Rhapsody I thought it was sung by a woman. I was wrong, but Freddy Mercury was about to change my world.
It’s not every day one has the privilege of witnessing history in the making. Anybody who watched Queen perform would agree it was indeed a privilege. Freddy Mercury was one of Rocks’ great superstars. The world is poorer for his passing.
