Every Day in May (Faces) #8 - #13

I have been down the past few days with a nasty case of the stomach flu. I am feeling much better today and managed to get all caught up with the challenge. The first one was done using only a Bic pen. It is a caricature of the guy who plays Dr. House on the TV show. I am pretty happy with how this one turned out.

This next one was also done with a Bic pen and is supposed to be a caricature of Bruce Willis. I'm not so happy with this one. That is the bad part about drawing with pen... no room for messing up!

This next one is another caricature of Subway surfer. He posted some really good expressions on his blog. Expressions is something I need to work on. I think this one turned out much better than the last one of him. Another Bic pen drawing.

Caricature of Kid Rock. First drawn with pencil and then with a brush pen.

Same technique as above. This one is of a member from The Drawing Board.

Again with the brush pen and another member of The Drawing Board.

They are all really fun and recognizable, but the Hugh Laurie one is my favorite.

I don't recognize some of these, but they're all beautifully done, showing a real flair for caricature.

These are great! Can't imagine working like that with a pen. You captured so much character. I like House - both your drawing and the show.

Oh my gosh!! These are awesome! You are so brave to work these completely in pen, and definitely more than talented enough to pull it off.
