Happy Birthday, Luke


This was a portrait done of my nephew Luke for his 13th birthday. The idea was to have his interests and hobbies integrated into the mass of hair as if they were extensions of his thoughts.

I had it framed with a surrounding mount and it looked pretty good. My nephew seemed thrilled with it too.

The drawing style is a homage to one of my favourite European comic artists, Jean "Moebius" Giraud.

My own worst critic...

So I figured I'd better post something since it has been a month to the day since my last entry.

It's also been a while since I've drawn caricatures. I find myself going through phases with what I like to draw especially wih less and less spare time, and lately caricatures have been pushed to the sidelines. Also, I'd been pushing myself further with my caricaturing so there came a point where everything I produced had to pass my own critical eye and quite frankly everything failed. So I decided to give caricatures a rest for a while until I stopped taking myself so seriously. They are supposed to be fun after all.

Which brings us to the here and now. I've had time to flex my artistic muscles in other areas and got that out of my system, so now it's time to get back to some caricaturing again. So here they are. Some I like, not all were successful, but they were fun.
