Recent stuff

Ever since seeing Seiler's animals on his blog I've been wanting to try caricaturing one. I love dogs so I thought I would start with one. I told a friend of mine that I would do his. This is Sage. She doesn't look that exaggerated but I really increased the size of her eye and made her shoulders a lot smaller. I wanted to give her a look of skepticism. She is one of the most frightened dogs I know until she gets to know you.
I had to post this after seeing Richard's Lincoln. Nice one by the way Richard. It's Thomas Jefferson. My brother and I have been doing some sketches of past presidents and I liked this one the best. It's taken from Rembrandt's painting of Jefferson.

Excellent, Jefferson's going to be a hard one without a photo. the dog's colour and finish is terrific.
