It's that time of season to be politically incorrect! A client wanted a caricature of Barack Obama but a little more painted style than what I usually do. I think he's making bumper stickers but I'm not sure if he's FOR or AGAINST Obama. I'll keep my eye out for it.
I painted this in Corel Painter, as usual, using oil pastel and a little watercolor and pencil thrown in. I started it on grey paper. It took a couple of days to complete, maybe 4-5 hours.
I admit it. I'm a huge fan of Tiger Woods. I played golf for many years (wish I had more time now) and perhaps that gives me an appreciation for how incredibly difficult it is to reach his accomplishments. I can remember watching him on The Mike Douglas Show at 2 years old. I followed his careeer from that point and he just always continued to amaze. And not just for his skills swinging a club. How he handles all the press, distractions and demands on his time, while performing on the golf course... someone like that comes along once every couple hundred years. I'm putting up a drawing I did for the sports section here in Orlando years ago. I hear today he will miss the rest of the year to have knee surgery. I'm giving up golf till that time of his return.
It's great to see resposes to my posts. I almost forgot to look until my friend Rick Wright told me some posts were made. Thanks guys and gals! I'll try to post more stuff. This one I cam up with a few weeks ago.. it is for a new line of cookies the bakery is putting out in stores. They asked for a "cool" older lady which looks somewhat like the founder. This is a vector format which has the ability to be printed at any size, resolution isn't an issue with vector.
