From My Sketchbook – The President Makes an Appearance!

This week as I was watching President Obama’s interview on climate change, it occurred to me that I should do a cartoon sketch of  him.  Fortunately, since he tends to talk thoughtfully and calmly, capturing his expression was a lot easier that I expected.   And to my delight, when I showed my husband the sketch later and asked him who he thought it was, he got it right away!

President Obama talking about climate change –

I also decided to work on cartooning some less noble faces, too.

Believe it or not, these two characters share the same face.  Separated at birth?  Maybe.  In any case, I think you’ll agree that they ended up with VERY different personalities!

separated-at-birth

And, keeping with the challenge of drawing different characters using the same face, the following gentleman all started from the same square-shaped, 3/4 view head.

The Crooked Politician –

The Wizard – 

the-wizard

Touchdown –

Someone’s Gotta Do It –

(As you can see, I can’t stop monkeying around!)

  2. I recognized the President right away, too. You’re getting so prolific with these cartoon characters!

    • Glad you recognized Potus, too! 🙂

      I’ve got a few marathon days ahead of me now, so unfortunately I won’t be able to do much cartooning at all. Boo hoo!
