HAHA, I am loving these caricatures of "famous people". the bieber's have been great, but i think the jersey shore guy takes the cake.

Lohen said...

Great caricatures!

I´ve been working on it... Kaspar in colour!

Cheers!

I sincerely hate Jersey Shore to the absolute core.

And sadly, these are the faces of what passes for contemporary entertainment now. Clueless, classless hacks, every last one of them.

Who the hell are these creeps anyway? They certainly don't seem cool to me at all. You're quick with that fast caricaturing hand though, so I'll give you that much, John.

Rothello said...

My blood boils at every mention of the Jersey Shore crew.

Clueless and classless do not BEGIN to describe 'em.

Dear Sir,

Though I am sure that you - who is well known for knowledge of the history of animation - are already aware of this, it seemed to be neglectful to chance not sharing it. This is an inter-office memo written by Walt Disney with a rough outline of how he wanted younger animators trained:

Since my knowledge of animation is negligible and my knowledge of the animation process is outright nil, it seemed best to present this to someone who could form a real reaction to it - a set that certainly contains you.

These are genius!

These fellas are strange. These new tudes need to show their chests.

What remains great about this blog are not only fun and unusual drawings, but links to further enlightenment about the world of animation.
Mr. Trombley's link's a fascinating read - thanks for posting! BTW, Many of Disney's approaches worked themselves into the world of engineering - there the storyboard became the "briefing board" where employee's capsuled info and comments could be arranged for quickly outlining and refining engineering projects.

hahaha you captured their hideousness perfectly

I take my rhetorical question back. I saw these talentless, unappealing hacks on television last night, and two minutes into the program, I had to turn it off. Snookie, or whatever that hag's name is, looks like any old whore you can pick up off the street. Unbelievable. Reality TV has sunken to a new low.

I feel sorry for the poor saps (especially the kids at my school who have made references to Jersey Shore before, I believe) watching this stupid, insipid crap and taking it seriously and not knowing any better because there's so much garbage being passed off as entertainment. Is it any wonder why I hardly watch television anymore?

Erik said...

they just brought a dutch jersey shore like program on dutch television... its like a disease.

this only shows that commecial broadcasting has absolutely no sense of creativity.

how long do we have to put up with this shit?

i would like to see those caricatures of yours all painted en look rediculously realistic and retarded
that would be awesome :p

I wish someone would hold instructional classes on how to where your pants belted below the ass cheeks. Whenever I do it, I simply look brain damaged and eventually stumble and fall.

Since I don't know these famous people, or any Jersey Shore Guidos, I thought the shirt lift image was a Post Modern take on LBJ's famous operation scar photo.

In case you are too young to remember, LBJ was a guido from Texas famous for swinging basset hounds by the ears, and ruling the country from his throne through an open bathroom door near the Oval Office.

Alex said...

No one will want to be this 'cool' when they see how grotesque the caricatures are.

Incidentally, the first one bears an uncanny resemblence to Jimmy Durante! Haa cha cha chaaaa!

Well you can thank market research and reality shows for crap entertainment now. Probably some corporate brainwash strategy so the masses keep buying more crap from them. Especially "teen sensations."

"Reality TV has sunken to a new low."

Reality shows have always been crappy, any loser can be some reality show "star."

Since you picked September 11 [the anniv.of the Osama teroist attack on our country in 2001], how about a knopck-out Osmama as nut caricature, like the WWI, or least WWII caricatures, since you're a student of the original 40s cartoons?

Pokey said...

That first looks like Jimmy Durante.
