'Voluptuous' 50th commission ....

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.

Eric and Ernie !!

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.

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.
