My latest masterpiece – a caricature of Beano cartoonist Gary Whitlock

(The notion of doing Gary as Desperate Dan was originally mooted, but I ultimately decided to go for Dennis the Menace, given the fact that there’d be much more immediately recognisability)

It’s been an interesting couple couple of weeks. Since finishing off the last couple of caricatures of some of my fellow volunteers from The Artrium gallery in Hartlepool (see HERE to have a look at those), I’ve just put down the pencil after completing this one – a caricature of my friend  Beano illustrator Gary Whitlock.

And… I think it’s okay (as far as these things go)… a little overcrowded, perhaps – but yeah, it’ll do.

About t’other Gary: he’s a really cool guy; just a terrific artist… and (given that he’s been in the comics biz since the late 80s) an old hand at this whole cartooning thing.
