Michael Collins Caricature Award ...

Final day rush - yet again - but I got my entries into the Michael Collins Caricature Award at the last knock. I always promise myself to do them through the year but I never seem to get around to it. Sadly I've really not done many celebrity caricatures with all the commission work going on.
The 'Looney Tunes' theme is of our leaders Rudd, Gillard and Swan and the portrait is a redraw of Jim McGinty  the former State Attorney General.
I've managed to get a highly commended the last two years - I must take more time for the loot though  - and perhaps move away from digital. ( I've got a perception of a little bias against the medium from the purists ). Fingers crossed.
The competition website is HERE.

Good luck, Tel! Your work is so deserving, I hope the 'purists' realize that!

Thanks for your kind words Emily - I should have titled them 'mixed media' - who knows what that means !!
Looking forward to catching up with all the cyber caricaturists in Raleigh - two weeks until we fly off on the first leg to London - can't wait.

This looney tunes caricature is great, the background works very well with your way of working! The other one is awesome too!

Thanks Marion - I just thought the Looney Tunes bit worked -if I'd had time I'd have put in Porky Pig etc too !!!
