Striving For Accuracy

I wasn't satisfied with my last Beebers; I knew there were subtleties I was missing, so I looked closer to try to figure out what I wasn't capturing.
And I came up with this.
Here are some more "serious" studies of celebrity childs and magazine people.
This stuff busts my brain.
But I think it's slowly paying off.

You, sir, are one of the best cartoonists alive today. Enough said. Those Beibers look ten times better than the last ones you posted, and I thought those were brilliant as well. You've successfully turned him into a cartoon character. Maybe you should pitch the idea somewhere. Teenagers love this stuff, so it wouldn't be surprising if this scored big ratings for a network trying to get down and hip with that target audience.

It's getting there. Keep on going.

Fascinating studies, JK - thanks for sharing.

Also, and risking boot to the head, has anyone tried animating caricatures (like yours or other) in a modified south park style? SP stuff's unbelievably crude by comparison, but as America and most of the world is currently in love with wittily written minimal 2D animation, wouldn't somebody go for a JK version that has solid drawing fronting the clever writing and voice work? It could be cheap to produce, a great training ground for caricature artists you train, and help raise the monies for other projects.

These are beyond great. What kind of pens do you use for you drawings?
