Mean Sketches...

13 comments
Yesterday I was having a conversation about caricatures with my friend Glenn Harmon , and I had mentioned to him that Marlo Meekins has some of the most vicious/hilarious caricatures out there right now.

Glenn suggested we give that a shot -- you know, meanness -- during our Friday Sketchclub get-together. Although no one comes close to Marlo's talent, it was fun to step on the gas pedal and see what viciousness we could come up with on our own.

I typically try to design my characters with appeal and an overall simple shape. I still kept my simple overall shape goal, but some of that meanness seeped into the drawing. This drawing was one among the drawings I did in my sketchbook.

Ha Ha, he's mean alright. He looks like Eric Campbell, the villain from Chaplin films. Great drawing!

Whoa, just checked out Marlo's blog. Not a timid gal that's for sure, but I do love her unique voice and mix of influences. Thanks for linking her Marcelo, I think my favorite was the effeminate He-Man and Skelator piece, pure comedy.

Plus I think you gotta get more mean, you were still being too nice...hah!
