Here's an ok illustration I did for a medical-type editorial article for a magazine based out of New Hampshire. Turns out they didn't want to use something this caricature-esque or illustration-y and went with a boring photo collage instead. Oh well, I got paid, and the company that hired me to do this job for the magazine liked it. It's pen and watercolor on watercolor paper.
Here's another Caricaturama Showdown 3000 entry. I was trying to do some interesting stuff with straight lines versus curved lines, so I ended up using a ruler for about half of the lines in this with no parallel lines. The likeness is iffy, but I like the design-i-ness and the colors at least.
I just realized that I forgot to post this when I shoulda a few weeks ago. I did this after the painting of Dhaveed and right before the Seinfeld painting. It's of the amazing Brian Oakes and was done with Markettes and watercolor on watercolor paper. Had fun with this one! Check out Oakes' blog here:

Here's another entry for the Caricaturama Showdown, this time for Inglorious Basterds. I had been working on this the night before it was due and decided to give up on it as it was only halfway done and I was undecided about how I felt about it. Well, I'm glad I finished it even though it's too late to submit it for competition.
Christoph Waltz was awesome in this role as the Jew Hunter, and he had this creepy way of being evil while smiling and sounding friendly, a bit like an evil clown.
I used a uni Super Ink pen with watercolor on Arches watercolor paper. 14" x 24"
