Now I know I said I wasn't going to bore you with commissions but I'm not getting a chance to do much else of late so here's a fiftieth birthday that's just gone out the door.
May 28th is the 25th Anniversary of the death of Eric Morcambe in 1984. Twenty five years strewth where did they go - little known outside of the UK and probably to most people under 35. Eric was a brilliant natural comedian remembered with deep affection by those that grew up with him and his 'straight man' sidekick Ernie Wise. Sadly little Ernie passed away a few years ago too.
I had every intention of doing a caricature - that's the problem with good intentions.
A short clip - there's a ton more on YouTube.

Catching up on arrears of caricaturists caricatures ( .. try saying that quickly !) - this is Paul Flatley a fellow member of ISCA who hails from 'Oop North' in England.
Tried a few different ways of doing this - about 3 hours all up.

This was a biggie framed commission which came off OK after lots of adjustments by the clients. A real estate company that specialise in developing industrial properties - the CEO's 50th birthday.
I can come up for air for a few days and do a couple of 'ME' jobs and an entry for the Michael Collins Caricature award - just one this year - 'mixed media' is the buzz just don't mention Digital !!!
