Mark, You knocked his neck out of the park. Excellent work. I'd love to hear your take on the various candidates in terms of the challenges of drawing their caricatures.
Hi Brad,Trump's neck is a thing to behold, isn't it? To answer your question, I think this election cycle for POTUS is a caricaturist's smorgasbord, filled with all sorts of treats. In addition to Trump's neck and hair, I think Cruz has a very interesting face, a bit bloated with a prominent nose, but beady eyes...a challenge to get the balance right. I was sorry to see Chris Christie drop out because he has a similar bloat going on...with much larger eyes. Carson and Rubio are fairly good looking people and are thus aren't as fun.On the other side, Hillary Clinton looks different nearly every week, depending upon how feminine vs. stately they are trying to make her look, and thus how much hair dye or makeup she has. She is fun to draw, with yet another bloated face and lots of varying expressions. Bernie Sanders is a bore to draw. He looks like almost anyone's uncle or neighbor to me...but maybe that's part of his appeal...he 'looks' more trustworthy than Hillary.
Let me know if I can answer a question.
