Tom Waits Caricature

Tom Waits Caricature: See below for details of how to buy a canvas print! You could literally spend all day moving through the crags and crevices of this brilliant face and never reach the end. I decided to do a warm-up drawing of Tom Waits today. With his Medusa hair and desert-map face he really is the perfect subject for a caricature. This is drawn in pencil, brush tip Pitt Pens (Black 199), big brush Pitt Pens (again Black 199) and 9B Caran d’Ache graphite stick. I always hold on to the big brush Pitt Pens for a while after they’ve “given up” as you can still use them for wash-like effects and shading.
