The Penny Smith @WhichPennySmith caricature page for #TwitterCelebCarix

PENNY’s TWITTER pic shows her with an unusual hairstyle, so we had a discussion on what it looks like at the moment. Apparently, it’s some sort of long, red style which, being a caricaturist’s nightmare, I couldn’t possibly imagine accurately. After referring to Google images it seemed safest to revert to her morewell-known blonde tresses for the final caricature.

THIS WAS AN attempt to get away from the bold black lines and try for a more gentle, muted feel to the entire caricature. Let me know what you think!

Caricature of Lord Sugar for #TwitterCelebCarix

HERE’S ONE I DON’T expect a response from! The caricature of Lord Alan Sugar was fairly obviously going to be a balack and white cross hatched attempt and sure enough, his craggy, curly heaired visage fitted the bill.

THE BBC ECONOMICS editor has the perfect face for Julian Opie painting. The art of cartooning and caricaturing can cross many boundaries and maintaining a flexibility to style and content can make life a lot moer interesting for this particualr caricaturist working in London!

THE INDEPENDENT newspaper columnist Mary Ann Sieghart drawn in pencil. Sometimes it seems a shame to finish off a caricature in ink when the pencillings seems to be doing a more or less finished job.

Latest caricature produced for a Twitter profile pic

TWITTER PROFILE PICS become so much more impactful if they are cartoons. As a direct result of my ongoing #TwitterCelebCarix project (search for that hashtag and you’ll see the caricatures I’ve drawn so far) I am beginning to receive commissions from people who’d like a caricature for their profile pic.

Today I was delighted to be able to draw a caricature for @Balhamyte.

What will be his reaction to the caricature drawn by a professional cartoonist from London?
