Scarlett Johansson


A caricature of actress Scarlett Johannson as she appeared in the movie, 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' (who's movie poster was based on Vermeer's 17th century painting of the same name).

You can see the various transformations my piece went through from initial pencil sketch to finished painting, here.

You continue to amaze, Chris. If you can keep this level of quality up we may have to start a new religion.

Chris, I saw this over on the drawing board. Amazing work! My wife thinks this piece is one of your best caricatures. I think the improvements from the initial sketch have done this piece nothing but justice. You may have just been looking at it to long. Because to me the likeness is there indeed.

Keep the work coming Chris. I feel like I don't see as much from you lately.
