Got a new gadget running on the right of the blog in case anyone is interested in the thinking behind illustration and caricature. It's purely to collate previous posts I've written - in answer to specific questions I've received - in one handy access point. It doesn't make one comprehensive treatise, although I'll certainly add to them if I find myself writing anything coherent in the future. Also, in no way are they supposed to be the last words on the 'right way' to draw - but if they helped... then all to the good! Hope you enjoy 'em...

Currently frustrated at finding her voice mail messages left at No.10 ignored - it's Argentinian president Cristina Fernández De Kirchner.

In the top/right image you can see I've started to cut up the individual images as the prints came out on one sheet.
The right/middle image shows a crop of Steve Buscemi which has already been applied (wet) to the blank sign material. This is made out of dibond, which is a thin polyethylene core sandwiched by two thin sheets of aluminium and comes in various colours. Dibond (or alupanel, as it's sometimes called) makes for a strong but slim sheet material and with its attractive finish it's great for signage.
The bottom/right image shows the finished sign fixed with gold wall mounts.
