And now for something completely different.

I used to do a little bit of caricature during my time as a commercial illustrator but nothing too fancy. I haven’t done any for a very long time, until this week.

Last night I tried doing a self-portrait caricature, with mixed results (according to my family). So tonight I had a go at our Prime Minister (update: ex-Prime Minister), Kevin Rudd.

This was done entirely in Photoshop. It’s an interesting way to work and I might do a few more of these for fun. Maybe I’ll work my way through parliament.


I couldn’t go to bed without doing a caricature of Rudd’s parliamentary opponent so here’s one of the Federal Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott.
