Germaine Greer

Here's a pencil sketch of the feminist firebrand and cultural commentator Germaine Greer...or is it?!
It's Germaine, alright, but it ain't done with no pencil, brother. Reason? I finally got round to placing the order and I'm know the proud owner of a Wacom Cintiq ux21 - good times! I've got to admit I was a bit unsure about it when I first started out as it was a bit like slipping around on ice but with lots of practise I started to get the hang of it. I'm sure the eagle-eyed amongst you can tell the above pic's not the real deal but I'm amazed at how close it can come. Like a lot of modern technologies it won't abolish what's gone before but just sit happily alongside, offering some great advantages to creative art not to be found elsewhere. So thanks again to all those who gave their comments on their tablet experiences; the above caricature's for you.


  1. fantastic sketch. Congrats on the Cintiq. Next month I'll be getting the 2nd gen. It's been my wet dream for far too long.

  2. Excellent !! Great exageration!
    And thank you for sharing your cintiq experience with us! I'm still hesitating...

  3. Thanks, Mike. If you can justify the outlay then I'd say go for it!

  4. Cheers, Tooninator; good luck with the purchase.
