This is a recent commission I liked, and I thought I’d share it here. I had a blast drawing it in more of an illustrative cartoony, almost “MAD” style, with a few in-jokes, or “Chicken Fat” thrown in for good measure. I’d like to do more like this in the future. When I revamp my studio website, this style will be well represented there, I think. I’ve already done another piece like this since finishing this one, that I’ll try to get around to showing here soon.
The subject of this caricature is a friend of mine, Floyd Scholz. It was commissioned by a mutual friend as a gift for Floyd. Being friends with Floyd, I know a few things about him, and I also know his personality ( he’s a really great, friendly guy ), so that made doing this caricature even easier and more fun.
Now, Floyd stays busy with this… his waiting list is a couple of years long at this point. Oh, and the price tag for something like that large Eagle above? How about A HALF MILLION DOLLARS? Yep. You read that correctly.
I’m obviously in the wrong business.
