Nate and Marcus

Here's Nate Kapnicky. I sketched him over a dozen times before coming up with this idea. I'm especially happy with the weirdness and the color of this drawing.
This guy has been one of my biggest idols for the past couple of years, and I've been lucky enough to be able to watch him draw and paint here in San Diego. He's a true pioneer of caricature and has a totally twisted view of reality. Dali himself would be wowed. Check out some of his sweet artwork here:

Here's Marcus Sakoda, a new guy at the San Diego Zoo. I've only seen him once without his Cookie Monster sweatshirt, so I wanted to do something interesting with that and thought that this was pleasantly stupid enough. I used only 4 colors and was kinda going for a geisha look with the way I used them.
He's been taking an online caricature class with Jason Seiler and is new to live caricature, but this dude is totally rockin' it already. Check out some of his amazing digital stuff here:
