Marco and Marlo

This first guy here is another standard, run-of-the-mill, caricature of a colleague leaving the company. The drawing is pretty simple, straight forward and says nothing. It slightly resembles the target, but little else.

This one, however, was inspired by Marlo Meekins, a true, mean caricature artist. Her work is not for the faint of heart, but she does find amazing new shapes and relationships.

It's hard to be mean in caricatures. I think I'm still afraid they are going to look over my shoulder, realize what they're looking at and punch me in the side of the head. Plus, I've always tried to make things appealing, I'm always avoiding the disgusting. Well, it's time to shake things up a bit.
