A Fresh Take on the Art of the Portrait
I am starting a new series of caricatures having fun doing famous some famous people.
This is an irreverent take on Scorsese, one my favorite directors. He has such a gentle and recognizable face and happens to be a great film maker. I have been re-introducing textures with these portraits in the form of custom papers. The illustration begins with a set of thumbnail sketches that develop the likeness and the desired attitude and degree of distortion.
