Throwback Thursday to a painting i did for Der Spiegel shortly before Nelson Mandela passed....it was painted foe an obituary issue as they knew he was going to die soon. Hard thing to paint, challenging and no lack of pressure. I was honored to have been asked to paint him.
A couple years ago I was commissioned to do a portrait of a couple, celebrating their marriage, since then, they had a baby girl and asked if I could paint her, adding her to their portrait. They asked for a hyper realistic style which takes more time, but in the end is worth it! I love drawing Babies they are so much fun to caricature, especially when they’re so cute! Slide to see close up. #caricature#babycaricature#hyperrealism#hyperrealistic
I've been asked how tight I go in sketches so I thought I would share a close up of my Anthony Bourdain sketch. Some sketches are much tighter, some loose, it depends on what it is for. For this one, I kept it loose as I didn't have much time to spend on it, it was done as a warm up for the day. Have a great day drawing and exploring! #anthonybourdain#sketch
I'm still in shock, and deeply saddened about the passing of Anthony Bourdain, mostly for his 11 year old daughter who is now without her father. Anthony was such a talented and inspiring man and even though I didn't know him, I felt like I did because of his relatable and pure character. He had such an impact on the world as a whole, he will be greatly missed! #anthonybourdain
