Where's Walto...

A few more attempts though I still don't think I've nailed it yet...

Saturday, July 30, 2005


While I thought the last drawing I did of Walt was kinda funny, I wasn't pleased with the lack of likeness. So I made a drawing where all I did was go for likness(bottom), then sort of crossed the two for hopefully a still funny drawing thats recognizable(top). Nick and Luke offered some great advice for caricaturing Walt that I'll try to incorporate in my next attempt. Lemme know what you think.

My Boss...

I bought a pretty cool book yesterday at the Disney Studio Store called Disney Treasures. There are quite a few photos of Walt Disney and I couldn't help doing a caricature. I'm not sure if I pushed the features beyond recognition or not far enough but this was my favorite of about five that I did.

My buddy and co-worker Luke Cormican was nice enough to send me some really cool caricatures from the covers of TV weekly. I'd really like to know who the artist is but can't make out the signatures on the bottom right. Can anyone with info on this artist please let me know?

Peter Jackson...

I'm a big fan of Peter Jacksons Lord of the Rings movies and can hardly wait for King Kong. So it is with the utmost respect that I present these caricatures...

More Jorge

If you've never had the opportunity to witness a John K. caricature this will be a special treat. In the top left you'll notice the always handsome Super Macho Jorge R. G. and a little farther to the right you can see that he's accompanied by Paris Hilton....I hope Sandra (his wife) doesn't fine out! John's caricatures are not only funny to look at but have such a great use of contrast, shapes and line.
Thanks to Jorge for sending it to me and Katie for getting it to me.

Evolution of a Caricature...or...Constipated Smile

Alot of times when I'm drawing a caricature it goes through several passes. It usually starts off either very realistic or looking nothing like the person I'm trying to draw. So I redraw it over and over, each time trying to exaggerate certain proportions and or attempting to get a certain expression. Today I had the opportunity to go through this process with fellow cartoonist Katie Rice (check out her blog 'funny cute' in the links section) She did a drawing (in this case it was of me) then I went over her drawing and we passed it back and forth like this several times. It's a great way to draw because the other artist will usually spot things you don't see and vice versa. In this case it was Katie who has a super keen eye and a great sense of observation. So here are the results, starting with Katies drawing...

Then my drawing...

Then Katie's


..and one more by me...

Booby Prize....

In keeping with the 'George' theme and by request of Super-Macho for a 'lesser-known' director, who can name this extremely funny and super talented director for the booby prize (a pair of nickels I found under the couch)?

It's not too intimidating to post caricatures of people most don't know...who's to say 'that doesn't look like so and so' if there's no reference. So I thought I'd post some more familiar faces and see if people can guess who they are, make sort of a contest out of it. If it goes well hopefully there will be more contests. One prize I'd like to offer at some point is a free one month trial membership to where you can see illustrations from some real caricature artists. People like Roy Nelson, William Auerbach-Levy, and a slew of others.

SO the contest is...

If you guess both caricatures correctly and are the first to post I'll send you 12 dollars annddddd....86 cents, the exact amount of money I have on my person right now.

It's a win win for me...nobody guesses right, I'm a lousy caricature artist but get to keep my $12.86...somebody guesses correctly and I've done at least an adequate job and may have a future with this 'art thing' after all.

Best of Luck...

Katie Rice

Katie Rice has a brand new blog that puts mine to shame. Katie is one of my favorite cartoonists of all time and I'm hoping she'll let me post some of her caricatures as a 'Featured Artist' on 'Cartoons and Caricatures'. Katies blog is called Funny Cute, there's a link to it on the side bar.


Here's a caricature from a couple months back of the extremely talented board artist Ricky Garduno. Ricky was my 'cube neighbour' during our tenure on Disneys The BuzzDotMaggle and is currently storyboard spervisor on Warner Bros. Coconut Fred. Ricky will repair your eyeglasses with his patended 'Garduno Safety Pin for a Screw Method' for a modest fee and a foot massage.

Here's a caricature of fellow Disney employee Pong. He 's one of many crack animators on the hit new Disney TV show "The Buzz on Maggie" Pong is the only person I know who can swear politiely.

Fred and Sean

Here's a recent caricature I did of myself and fellow cartoonist Sean Szeles. Sean's a devout vegan while I enjoy meat and meat-byproducts. I think our diets are reflected well in our forms...lump and stick.

Please click to enlarge.
