They Don’t Make ‘Em Like They Used To

April 8, 2010

A caricature, when done right, is positively hilarious.

Those big ears, that lil’ nose, it’s all stuff to exaggerate with & the more = the better the end result.

But what if after anxiously waiting for it, your caricature sucks ?

Not because the artist failed to capture those… unique details that make your face your face but rather because there’s no exaggeration.

At all.

Our good friend Christopher Walken got his caricature done for Sardi’s restaurant, yes the one where the walls are decorated with drawings of famous peeps.

Must’ve been a big deal as the press was there for the unveiling ceremony & what they & ol’ Chris got to see was…

Caricature Walken

WTF !?!

Seriously ?

The assignment is a caricature, the model is Christopher Walken’s wonderful face & that is the end result ???

That’s Christopher Walken like after being Photoshopped into oblivion.

That’s Christopher Walken like from an alternate universe where he’s a male model.

That’s Christopher Walken like 35 years ago (at least).

How could an artist miss all those typical & current Walken-esque details ?

Folks, I’m no caricaturist but give me a crappy art program & I’ll do better than that.

Well, probably not but in the spirit of World Peace I’m willing to give it a shot…
