On some of those foggy nights out, when the fog somehow clears up a bit, you may realize that that crowd you’ve been keeping isn’t exactly what you thought it was.
Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. More often to the worst, though.
I bought some more markers, colored ones this time around. They sure are lots of fun and handy to use.
Here’s a couple of fairly quick caricatures done with them. The first one is of the “Finnish Hasselhoff”, Frederik, who’s already a sort of a caricature the way he really is. The original reference was a thumbnail sized photo in a newspaper, but the photo displayed here is a better version borrowed from his website. The man is like 63 (or something) and has a sweatband and a pierced eyebrow (edit: must not forget the mullet!) . Macho, so macho. Phew!
And the second one is of course the President of Finland, Tarja Halonen. Took less than an hour on this one. Frederik took maybe two.
