Gary Oldman caricature

Another entry, another caricature, progress me thinks? Well, here he is. A fantastic actor and i hope this caricature stands up.

Michelle Yeoh

Crouching tiger, hidden caricaturist? I enjoyed doing this. I felt the sketch went well and then i began blocking in and basically jamming with the colours. Used some artistic licesnce with the composition, ie, the pots etc.

Morgan Freeman revised

I don't often go back to  a piece, but i did this time...

Morgan Freeman

Going back to a more painterly, basic style. Working on shapes, colours, expressions.

Monday, 18 July 2011


Can't help but think i need to do more of these rather than rushing out competition pieces. Enjoy!

Saturday, 18 June 2011

I have overhauled my little studio to offer a much more professional product. I feel that i can now provide top quality prints for anyone wanting a private commission.

So if you are looking for something a little different for that gift solution maybe a caricature is for you?

Feel free to contact me for a speedy response and a can do attitude!

Commissions Relaunch

I have produced commissions over the years but i was never happy with the print finish spat out by my HP 1280. I was offering cd's with the art work on for my clients but i know people prefer a shiny paper caricature to hold on to.

So, now i will be purchasing a decent printer very soon and i hope i will get some more enquiries for private commissions. I feel more confident that my art is getting to an acceptable quality and i hope i will be able to say the same about the finish of the print.

For the Bookface comp on FB, tried keeping it simple :-)

Friends and stuff

Please listen to this :-)  A guy who makes his own music and is enjoying success too. Talented artists come in all different shapes and this one comes in a star shape.

I have struggled to produce art i like consistently. Anyone have any good advice to overcome this hurdle? Appreciated if you do stop by on this blog to offer your thoughts.

Bob Dylan

For Witty comp. I have yet to ever receive a vote for my art, so, i know it sucks. I keep trying, though, and with the help of Jeff Stahl and some Chris Wahl brushes, i may just stop overkiling my caricatures and give them some loving painterly daubs, etc :-)

Tuesday, 8 March 2011

Yes, for another competition. It'ds healthy to compete, me thinks.

This was a difficult one due to the quality of the reference photo (very grainy and faded). I carried on regardless and did my best.

Still pushing the exaggeration and being a tad more patient...
