Madoff Sketch

Wanted to do a loose sketch, just for fun... but went overboard in the end. It was fun. =)

Bernard Madoff (ref. pic.), former chairman of the NASDAQ stock exchange and a "Wall Street legend", arrested and charged with perpetrating the largest securities fraud ever committed by a single individual, amounting to over US$50 billion.

On the day prior to his arrest, Madoff told his sons that he was "finished" and that the investment arm of his hedge fund company, Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, was "basically, a giant Ponzi scheme". He was turned in by his sons.

Very good, I had no idea what the guy looked like so I googled him - you have him just right, great expressions.

Hey Richard, thanks for your encouragement, really appreciate it. I've place a link to the reference photo in the paragraph below the first sketch actually.

If anyone would like to see the sketch and photo side by side, you may go to my personal blog: http://dancerene.blogspot.com/2009/01/bernard-madoff-steven-yeo.html

There's no reference photo for the second Madoff sketch though, cos I made it up.
