A half-sketch half-painting of recently departed Martin Landau, who I'm sure is contemplating the hideous flared slacks he had to wear in Space 1999. Sadly, I never owned a model Eagle Transporter... Tools: Sketchbook Pro + Photoshop
I've recently been looking at some old work and
noticed that in the past, when creating a digitally drawn caricature, I
seemed to have used a lot more marks than I generally do now. Here's an
old image from 2010 of Evelyn Waugh that shows a level of mark-making
that I would now probably avoid; not because I don't like the look but
that these days I'm liking trying to achieve the image I'm after with
fewer (and more 'abstract') lines. Nothing's written in stone though and
I'm sure this kind of approach will swing back round at some point...
Watched Pulp Fiction again recently for the first time since it came out and realised what great characters for caricature Jules and Vince were. Then realised I had never drawn either; so here's Samuel L Jackson as Jules. John Travolta as Vince to follow...at some point.

I called this post 'Stage 1' as I'd like to develop it at some point to a more involved piece but at present I'm not sure which way to go. Maybe a black and white hatched drawing or a highly rendered colour version—not sure. Going to sit on it for now...
I dunno why, but I just find things going in one ear and out the other
inherently funny. Anyway, thought I'd kick off the new year with a face
tug of Force Awakens' badass, Adam Driver. Not unusual for me to be one film
behind the times...
Best wishes for 2017, everyone...
