Louis CK, Steve Martin, Mindy Kaling, Stephen Colbert and Ellen Degeneres.
A recent series of comedian portraits for Delta Airlines inflight magazine.
Louis was my favourite to draw.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention on here, I have a new portfolio site! Clean, fresh and very functional over at www.cargocollective/joelbenjamin.
Check it out and get in touch to talk business :)
I’ve decided to start a weekly portrait practice, just one a week with minimal colouring and photoshop work. Here’s Ian Curtis to kick things off.
My girlfriend and I watched 'Control' the other day and both agreed that although Sam Riley does a very good job of capturing Ian’s mannerisms and dancing etc, he comes nowhere close to the look of despair ever present in Mr Curtis’ deep eyes.
Portrait of an Ex Guerrilla Soldier. Private commission.
The thick bold line at the back of his neck is a low down Mohawk, the likes of which I have never seen before.
Last few hours to get your hands on the zine and tee deal in the Radulthood store!
Here’s a cheeky peek at some of the Radulthood spreads. Treat yourself to a copy here.
Second pic down is my portrait of Rodney Clarke!
Another comic short, this time 2 pages!
Adrian Tomine’s early ‘Optic Nerve’ comics largely guided the way for me with this and it’s approach. I tip my hat to him.
All feedback welcome, I’d love to know how this registers with people.
