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...

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.

Had good fun doing this, though it's not best served by the final artwork being scanned rather than photographed (need a new camera as I can't get the focus to work properly). Next painting!
Tools: Markers, acrylics and pencils on A4 paper.

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 b&w hatched drawing or a highly rendered colour version—not sure. Going to sit on it for now...
