Daniel Craig

I did this using a tiny reference photo in a tv listings magazine - (you can't have Christmas without a Bond film on telly!) - my eyes ache from staring at it! Must remember to save my eyes (and hopefully improve the quality of my work) by using much bigger reference material in future!

The Goons

Bit of a work-in-progress this one but thought I'd give it an airing before I go back in and tighten it all up. The Goons were Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers, Michael Bentine & Harry Seacombe (I think the fifth guy pictured here is the announcer Andrew Timothy). Between 1951 and 1960 they created a world of surreal lunacy which is one of funniest and influential radio shows ever made.

Fat By Proxy

Here's a pic I did recently for a local band. Not what you'd call a caricature but they're all dressed as their alter egos! There's quite a lot I don't like about it - I think it needs a lot more work - but enough that I do like to post it here!

A Recent Gift Caricature

Alex Turner

Another one from my sketchbook - Alex Turner off of the Arctic Monkeys! My posts are like British buses - nothing for ages and then two come along at once!

Ringo Starr

Its about time I posted something! Unfortunately, nothing to justify the extended break in posts, just a quick sketch of Ringo Starr. 'Not even the best drummer in the Beatles' but they wouldn't have been the same without him!

David Gilmour

A late night pic I did a little while ago of Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. Meant to post it on his birthday but forgot I'd done it!

Pete Doherty

He's 30 this week and has a got a new album out so thought I'd do a quick sketch of the fella!

Duffy Sketch

I've seen a lot of good caricatures of Welsh Warbler and 3 fold Brits winner Duffy recently so thought I'd have a go. Only got as far as this little sketch so far as I've been busy trying to put my website together. I'm trying to push the squareness of her face and her 60's styling. Keep changing my mind as to whether it actually looks like her or not!

Another Depp I did last year

Not what you'd really call a caricature as its basically copied off the Fear and Loathing dvd cover. Quite like the image though!

A quick Keith Richards - want to work on the ciggie and have him surrounded by plumes of smoke...
