Santa learning about connected messaging and the internet of things…
That’s a wrap for Movember 2019. Hope you all enjoyed it!

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!
My moustache Daily Doodle for Movember 27 is Salvador Dali. He remains one of my greatest early influences. He was a brilliant artist, original thinker and bohemian extraordinaire.

Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp struck a chord for countless people all over the world. The character still resonates with society today. The Little Tramp is poignant, quirky and sweet. He had a moustache too and no collection of moustaches would be complete with The Little Tramp.
Charlie Chaplin wrote a song that seems to complement the Little Tramp character. It is beautifully sad and yet; hopeful. Just like The Little Tramp.
Tho’ your heart is aching
Even tho’ it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by
Smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining thru for you.
Light up your face with gladness
Hide ev’ry trace of sadness
Altho’ a tear maybe ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
What’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worth while”
Batman has inspired all kinds of fan art but this takes the cake. Talk about a commitment to the brand!
Come to think of it, why don’t I have a bat’stache?
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!
