Sometimes a caricature just comes together quick as in the case of Cleveland Hero Charles Ramsey. He was the neighbor of the guy that kept three women captive in Cleveland for 10 years. So I figured he deserved his own cartoon tribute along with this classic line he told the reporter interviewing him after the rescue.
I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms…either she’s homeless or she’s got problems.
This is what I love about not having a set schedule as I can pull these things off quickly to react to news of the day. Must have struck a cord because I shared this on Facebook last night and actually got some shares from that damn site. Seemed to be a hit on G+ too.
Bill Cosby was one of the first actors considered to play the part of Doctor Who in a Warner Brothers film based on the famous BBC television series.
Prior to any trip via car/plane I need reading material. So for this trip I picked up the 25th anniversary edition of Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader. One of the stories talked about how during the dead times of the Doctor Who franchise, the BBC sold the film rights to Warner Brothers. In the late 80′s/early 90′s, Bill Cosby was Americas favorite dad and doctor. So WB supposedly approached Bill who turned it down. The film was eventually made in 1996 but not by WB and it starred Paul McGann.
I tried to find some additional evidence but so far only thing I could find was an obscure reference to an Entertainment Weekly tidbit from an edition prior to them posting anything on the web. Either way, Doctor Who fans would probably be up in arms.
Love the book though. It is like my on the go edition of the Friggin Loon and Madhatters ie information that is interesting but really doesn’t make you any smarter haha. Check out their website at http://bathroomreader.com or buy the book.
So here is my continuing efforts at trying new things related to drawing. This is my caricature version of Peter Dinklage, known to Game of Thrones Fans as Tyrion Lannister. You can see the beginnings as a simple pencil sketch, then I added watercolor and ink to the image and finally pulled it all into Photoshop to color it.
This is probably the longest I have ever worked on one image, only because I am learning some new techniques as I go. Might tweak the color some more but here is where it stands now.
We interrupt Australia cartoons to show you the latest Zombie from Byron Rempel…..Bearman Cartoons! Yep me (well my green haired personification). And even better he recorded the process. Check it out.
