Aloha

2 nights ago I saw a documentary on Barack Obama and learnt he was born in Hawaii.
I've wanted to do a caricature of him for a while now and it's tenuous that I chose that fact about him, but there you go.

No he was born in Jordan, saudi arabia and russia... raised by mad bastards and trained to kill whitey... well that is the one side of the fence anyway.

This looks like him, and surely that's the main thing

Matthew Cruickshank said...

Ermm maybe. Listen Mick I don't really understand anything you just wrote. Are you ok?

My favorite caricature of yours was Jarvis Cocker.
This one is close.

Matthew Cruickshank said...

Hey Stef check out BBC Radio 6 online if you get the chance- Jarvis does a show on there and it's tres bon!

I'm not sure about this caricature really, but merci!

I'm rubbish at caricatures. So it makes me doubly cross when I see one as excellent as yours done with a couple of simple cut out shapes.

Matthew Cruickshank said...

Thanks Stefan- I've lost a bit of confidence with caricatures, I just don't do enough of them to begin to really push the shapes and the proportions, I must do more.

I saw your renderings in photoshop of the cars you designed and I think they're incredibly slick and professional.

Bloody good.

Matthew Cruickshank said...

But is it distortion?.......

Oscar Grillo said...

Distortion indeed!...Ask those who know about it!

Matt J said...

No-Hawaii is a good angle-I haven't seen any other caricature of Obama use that fact.

After following this conversation very closely and taking many notes and cross referencing material...I agree with the last person.
