Harvard Wind

Sometimes I like to exaggerate a little when I'm out sketching to poke some fun at my fellow man (and at myself in the process).

This guy resembles our dad, don't you think?

Mr. Gurney, you forgot to draw his chin.

Kinda reminds me of Steve Allen as Benny Goodman in the Benny Goodman Story, by way of Norman Rockwell...

Awesome! Something about exaggeration makes characters feel MORE real to me. Jamie Hewlett is a master of the dimensionally-solid yet caricatured form.

i agree sometimes a slight exaggeration feels more 'real'. .. i an almost hear the music in this sketch.

it is no means a 'copy', but i agree too, that it reminds me a bit of a normal rockwell(not a bad thing!) he seemed to like faces like that, and would exaggerate them a bit.

It reminds me of that Rockwell where the kinda dorky looking guy, wearing white tux jacket, is pinning a corsage on a plain looking girl, the Prom--and Rockwell managed to convey that the two have real feelings for each other. That was a really sweet painting.
