even more caricatures

I think I'm getting much much closer to capturing the likeness of the guy I'm trying to caricature.  The reason I haven't revealed the name is because I want to make absolutely sure that I'm successful.  If I hand you a drawing and say "hey, look at this picture of Jack Nicholson that I drew", that gets you thinking about Jack Nicholson and what he looks like.  So, I'd have to have done a very sloppy job for you to not recognize him within my scribbles.  But, if I just hand you a drawing without saying anything and on first glance you say "Jack Nicholson" then I am finally successful.

So, with that in mind, try and tell me who I have caricatured in the drawing above.  That alone will determine if more work is needed.  But, like I said before, with the one guy I think I'm getting very very close.

I animated another comedian

Last month I put a comedian's joke to animation.  Today I've done it again.  The comedian I chose this time is the great Robin Willaims:

I wrote a very lengthy post about his untimely passing on my sister blog here.  Watch this video then go read that article to remember what an amazing human being he was.

It's election time in Canada again

The writ has been dropped as it's been said.  "What's a writ and who dropped it," you ask.  I don't know and I don't care.  All I know is that there will be another federal election here in Canada to decide who will be our next Prime Minister.  This year it comes down to any one of these 5 choices:

Stephen Harper

Justin Trudeau

Tom Mulcair

Elizabeth May

Gilles Duceppe

Any one of these people could run away with this election on voting day October 19.  I guess that depends on how well each candidate does in each debate.

Here's an early speculation on how the first debate will be.

The most of the poll numbers are very close so it's anybody's guess who the victor will be.  I personally would prefer to vote for this rather obviously butch lumberjack pictured below.  I hope he has no surprises for me.

I animated a comedian

Here's some animation I just finished.  I basically took one of Sarah Silverman's jokes and made a little vignette out of it.  I hope you enjoy it.  Although I should advise that this is most likely NOT SAFE FOR WORK.  (Well it depends where you work I guess).

More Caricature Identification

In my last post, I put up a caricature of someone and then asked for anyone to try to guess who it was.  Well, here is another attempt at that same person.  The one who guesses it correctly gets 55,000,000,000 Zimbabwe dollars!!!
