The Skeptic Magazine - Robin Ince cover

When I was asked to do a caricature illustration of Robin Ince for the latest cover of The Skeptic Magazine, I knew I was going to have to come up with something different and challenging, as I've drawn Robin a couple of times before and didn't want to feel like I was just retreading old ground.

After reading the interview that appears in the magazine, I came up with a 'multiple versions' of Robin idea - it changed a little bit in the working out, but it's close to what I had in mind.

It was a tough one to do for sure. I must thank Andreas Beck for helping me out with some valuable photo reference. The initial idea was in part based on this famous pic:

A few more movie star sketches

Orson Welles is an old sketch that I thought would work well in the set.

I'll be offering some 8x5" framed prints of these for sale soon, once I've done a few more - stay tuned :)

A couple more recent jobs...

These two were both a lot of fun to do, and went down very well with the customers!

Birthdays and anniversaries...

Birthdays and anniversaries probably make up the majority of my gift caricature work - here are a couple of examples of recent ones! This one is for a couple celebrating their first wedding anniversary:

And this one is a birthday gift for a TV and theatre set designer:

I love doing these caricatures, it's so much fun finding out about people and trying to get a little bit of their personality into the picture. If you have a special anniversary or birthday coming up, or know someone who does - a unique gift caricature makes an unforgettable and personal present ;)
