Mr Kerry - beseeching divine guidance? I learnt a trick a long time ago from studying the art of the master cartoonist and caricature artist Derek Bauer, in how to represent certain lines by keeping them simple and 'patterned' - especially when juxtaposed with areas of furious detail. When I came to draw John Kerry's hair, having completed the face with all its detail, it just ended up being too much, somehow. Representing his hair using simple wavy lines gave the contrast needed and kept the comical element.
