>Steve Martin ~ The Pink Panther 2.5

>

I love this image of Steve Martin in The Pink Panther. I’ve wanted to do a caricature of Steve Martin for quite some time but never found the right image. This image was small and lacked detail but worked ok for a low resolution practice run. I’ve also been wanting to caricature a skyline and this silly expression was a good candidate for that type of background. This is really a very mild caricature as Steve Martin pretty much does the work for you with his awesome facial expressions. Below is the source image I worked with and a short video with a taste of this great comedian in at work in The Pink Panther 1.

Mr. Bean ~ The Last of Series One

Gilbert Stuart’s Mrs. Richard Bean
These are a couple of photo-manipulations of Mr. Bean or Rowan Atkinson in an attempt to breath a little life back into that brilliant character. These are quick ones but there are many more on the way for you Bean fans out there. Fun stuff!

>BB King A Caricature Study

>

This is a quick caricature study I did of BB King. I’ve always wanted to do a manipulation of him but most images are noisy from the dark night clubs. This was just a low resolution practice piece so it worked out fine. The original source image is below as well as a little of the King in action.

>The Village Voice Magazine Cover Commission

>

This is my latest commercial commission which is a cover for The Village Voice Magazine out of New York City featuring Adele and TuneYard. I’m not totally satisfied with the final outcome, but sometimes we have to work with the material we’re given and make the client happy. Anyhow, it is what it is. They were happy so I guess I did my job. It appears that they jacked up the sats quite a bit. Below are the source images I worked with.

Speaking od New York, I will be in New York City for a +HIRL which is a Google+ Hangout In Real Life from February 2nd through February 5th. Come and join me if you are in the area. Be sure to catch Ryan Van Sickle in his LIVE SHOW with Daria Musk and Heather Fay!

 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and be inspired!

>F.C. Cowfer’s ~ Princess Bean

>

A portrait of Mr Bean as a princess. This is yet another installment in my Mr. Bean series in an attempt to breath a little life back into his character after his announcement of the retirement of Mr. Bean the character. These are always fun and seem to be quite popular so stick around. There are several more cominimg.

>Deborah Wallis ~ A Google+ Portrait Commission

>

Tonight I’m posting a Google+ Portrait Commission of Deborah Wallis, AKA +Deborah Wallis on Google+. Deborah and I have actually been friends for some time now. I met her on Linkedin through her group Freelancers Showcase. Deborah is a Transcriptionist by trade, a lover of cartoons and comics, comic art books, photography, classic music and rock ‘n’ roll. Lover of classic cartoon and rock ‘n’ roll videos as well as a collector.
Deborah is also the founder and owner of One On One Transcription which provides top-drawer corporate, organizational and entrepreneurial principals with exceptional transcription services one-on-one. Her clients include pioneers of the human potential movement, award-winning authors and writers, copywriters, researchers, and other industry influencers who demand a dedicated provider that delivers flawless transcripts every time. It’s a great site. Check it out.

This was a challenging commission for a couple of reasons. First of all, ladies are just hard to caricature and the lack of experience in caricaturing women doesn’t help. Deborah being a comic collector was the perfect candidate for a concept that came out pretty cool. I had all sorts of comic book characters in the background and even a certain little bird on her shoulder. Well, after thinking about it we both agreed that due to the risk of copyright issues, we’d be better off eliminating the characters from the background. Below are two images of Deborah, the one on top being the source image. Hope you enjoy.

 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and be inspired!
