Gift Caricature for The Mayor!

Anyone from Cork recognize this guy? This was a special commission by a friend of his. A few special touches to notice- The broken finger on his right hand, the shoe coming apart, and the odd trophy in his hand. That's Cork City Hall on the left and the Cork coat of arms on the right. Cool, eh?

Christmas is coming! Order your unique gift caricatures NOW while there's still time!

Art by Committee...Bright Eyes

Another fun entry for the monthly art jam on the James Gurney Art Blog!

“He is shorter than I remember, and thin. His fur is grayed to white in a fringe around his head, just below his ears. His coat is dull, thinning, and coarse. His eyes, so bright I…”

And, Hey! Some cool words from the man himself:

Hi, Mark,
Thanks for doing ABC this month. Your solution is fantastic, and goes to the head of the pack. He looks to me like an old college professor, someone who has spent his career trying to explain obscure theories to students who aren't necessarily listening. His eyes are often tired from reading and he has to keep his glasses in a little alligator skin bag because they won't fit in his pocket. And he's secretly proud of his eyebrows.

I love the way you made the eyes slightly non symmetrical. I've been noticing that more and more in real people, and I'm beginning to think it was the key to Sargent's likenesses.

All the best, and thanks again.
