Your Weekend Image, Saving You From Ugly Guys Every Saturday
Last week it was Tom Delay, this week it's Bill Maher. I just can't let these ugly dudes ride the top of my blog page all weekend long. I can't do that to my readers. So here's this.
I did this for our production design class for Charles McClennahan back at the Film School, O Charles of the tragic family story. Embezzlement, suicide, disgrace, etc. Terrible. And, what's more, he sounded exactly like Kermit the Frog, and that made him the most fun teacher to do an impression of ("Every breath I take is a miracle!"), just behind RST's ("I'm gonna get you!") but just in front of BM's unbelievably awesome skeleton laugh ("Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!"). Anyway. Were a production designer to do an illustration for a bar in a screenplay, it might, I emphasize MIGHT, look a little something like this. Except the man behind the bar would probably not look like a giant, and the man entering the bar from the surface of the sun would have a head more centered on top of his neck, rather than just a little to the right. Charles did give me a hard time about the head, and deservedly so, but he liked it overall. The drawing's not so good close up, but with this blog, I hope to include the not-so-hot drawings I've done, as well as the ones I like. Balance, you know.
