Tobe Nwigwe and Fat – Procreate Caricature

Tobe Nwigwe Fat Art Drawing Caricature Instagram

Tobe Nwigwe is one of the most consistently creative artists working today, with a singular artistic vision only matched by the prolificacy of his output. He, Fat and Nell (and the kids!) have this unified aesthetic from furniture to clothing, and the Pandemic Project was an uplifting event at a time when everything was bleak. The whole family-centred approach to music and video creation is radically wholesome and is really inspirational, but there’s room for brooding and darkness in there too. I’m a bit of a fan. It’s utterly jaw-dropping how much music he’s put out in the last year. Did I mention I’m a bit of a fan?

This is a caricture portrait of Tobe Nwigwe and Fat created in Procreate for the iPad. I intend to do a series of caricature portraits to hone my digital painting. I’m quite late to the digital game so the learning curve is somewhere between a really large hoola-hoop and one of the rings of Saturn. I’m finding it a curse and a blessing, there’s huge time savings to be had but an amazing gulf conceptually between drawing on paper and drawing and painting digitally. It’s the long way to Carnagie Hall for the next while.

This caricature was a wedding gift for a wedding last year and was put on display for the arrival of the bride and groom! The bride is wearing a Kerry jersey, and the groom has a Kerry bandana around his neck. It features signposts for Shrone, Killorglin and Dublin. Also included are the Sunday Times, a pilates mat, a GAA football and references to other sports including golf, rugby, badminton, tennis and hurling. And a cup of herbal tea! In the background is a vintage wedding car with cans on the back and the bride and groom’s initials on the number plate with a loveheart.
Weddings will be back in a big way later this year so if you’re going to one and you’re looking for a really special personalised wedding gift drop me a line!

This was one of the caricatures I did last year for a Christmas present. It features the subject in a bright pink Juicy tracksuit with an YSL bag and prosecco!

I had enquiries from as far away as New Zealand and delivered work to the USA, France, and England.
