I was thinking about painting an Orson Welles pic in oils based on my sketch a couple of posts ago, so I just did this really quick colour sketch (10 mins or so). Rather than paint the sketch, I just had it open and used it as reference and painted really fast onto a black background, trying to push the exaggeration a bit further at the same time.

...the shiny new coalition government was formed. Not sure if Nick Clegg will be wanting to party too hard to celebrate now!
This caricature is the main image on my caricature illustration website - check it out, there's a big gallery of work on there now.

Tomorrow would have been Orson Welles birthday, as Derren Brown's blog reminded me today. I watched Citizen Kane and the Arena documentary on the great man a couple of days ago and both were just as good as I remembered. Here's to you Orson :)
You can now buy this caricature (titled Orsoniac!) as a t-shirt here.
Here's a recent gift caricature that was a lot of fun - this couple just got married and the customer wanted them drawn in their stag/hen party outfits (him dressed as Bruno and her in a dress made of Haribo packets!). Brilliant, love doing fun stuff like this ;)
