80th Birthday Caricature
I hope I look this good when I turn 80 years old! This is a gift caricature where I wanted its style to reflect the dapper person. So I did not overly exaggerate it and went for an editorial style. The 11" by 14" illustration was done with PITT artist pens, water color washes and Prisamacolor Col-Erase pencils.
I was thinking about the great work of David Levine while drawing the cross hatching. The client sent me a note saying " AWESOME job!!! We love it, it reflects very well his personality... You are so talented! Thank you!"
