It's a great honor to have my Johnny Depp caricature included in the 2008 CA Illustration Annual. As always the work showcased on it's pages is outstanding and just to be in there with all that talent is incredible.
Just tightened up the original sketch...and if you get a chance check out David O'Keefe's blog where he posted a "Godfather W.I.P." that is terrific!!
...also adding a rough sketch of the Dalai Lama
1950 - 2008
Watching the election returns will not be the same without him...he's a tough guy to replace and will be sorely missed!!!
Well I reworked the Burton sketch...followed Paul Moyse's suggestion to reduce the size of the eyes and did a bit more tweaking...I'm happier with this version and could definitely take it to the painting stage. I also had a reference photo of Al Pacino sitting on my desk so I roughed one out of him as well. Now I guess before I get sidetracked on anything else I should finish the McCartney!
The über talented Court Jones was commissioned by Upper Deck Cards for their "MLB Presidential Predictor Series" and to my surprize and delight I found out that myself and another NCN member, Elgin Bolling, a.k.a The Subway Surfer were included in the background of the Rudy card as spectators! Head over to the "Presidential Predictor" site to see the rest of the cards (or even better buy a set)...all are superb!
Thanks again Court!!!!
