Here’s someone I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time and who seems to fascinate me to no end: Glenn Danzig.
A bit of eerie synchronicity going on as well: Going through some biographies I just realized that I finished the image – truly unbeknownst to myself – on his damn birthday, June 23rd. So happy birthday, Glenn…
Fucking metal. Serious business.
Barack Obama’s inauguration will be happening tomorrow January 20th, which means the good ol’ boy in power will step down too.
So, goodbye Bush – don’t let the door hit you in the ass. Hope the next time we hear from will be when you’re put on trial.*
In the mean time, the Guantánamo Bay detention camp is still running with full steam. You can sign a petition to challenge President Obama to close Guantãnamo, put an end to illegal detention, torture and impunity at Amnesty International’s 100 Days Challenge website. It only takes a minute to do it.

*) Not holding my breath, though.
I’m a fairly big man but not this big.
Initially this just supposed to be a stylized self-portrait for a forum activity, but then it occurred to me that with minor adjustments it would fit another activity too: Japanese Giant Monsters at U16! Better to look like a silly giant than some lame-ass pop punk promo picture.
Swiped the photo for the quick montage from Satyendra.
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.
Here are a few quick caricatures I’ve done of fellow Stylus members over the past few months. Not really funny ones, but at least couple of them have decent likenesses. But they were fun to do.
Here are the reference images…
…And the caricatures themselves.
Well, not entirely filthy. Just a regular “Happy Valentine’s Day!” for the most of you. Sincerely. Really.
And if you see yourself as worthy, treat yourself to the filthy valentine too.
This Valentines day card was done for the Stylus Art Collective’s “Filthy Valentines” challenge. You can find a printable PDF and emailable version of the card at Stylus blog along with the rest of the dirty, dirty Valentine’s day cards. Some of them are probably not safe for work…
… but shouldn’t you working instead of surfing anyways.
