Boy George, Michael Jackson and friend !





I'm doing a 40th Birthday caricature for a client. The gift is for a big fan of eighties music so these two will be snuggled up to him in the final collage. Tight deadline, a couple of days for both and the birthday boy, great to have some extra celebrities to populate the new website ( I know I'll finish it one day ). I couldn't convince her to have Rudd and Abbott in similar dress as I've got them half finished.
Abbott as MJ in that pose with budgie smugglers - what a thought !


Here's the final ........... the party I'm told features a Boy George impersonator - the things people do for a crust !!

NICE work Tel!! I like the body of Boy George! Are these just samples you did or was this for a commission gig??

Tel said...

Thanks John, Luke and Rick.

It was for a commission Rick - these two were the support characters.

Tel....before I read all the other comments I was going to say you nailed the stance Boy George would have....sorry to be repetitive.
They're all great!

Tel said...

Thanks Patrick, Carl and Kelly - appreciate your comments. Not really over the moon with them as they probably took about a third of the time I would normally throw at them !

Great piece Terry!

Glad to see you're not just napping on the old porch rocker ;)

...btw, We took your advice and got a new "Mate"...now a 5 month old Labradoodle who is keeping us on our toes...Thanks :)

All the best...hope the temps warm up a bit for you!

Thanks Vin - not out to pasture just yet !
A labradoodle - my neighbour has one - Sean - a real character !
