I drew this caricature of Mr. Bernie Sanders in honor of his recent win in Michigan.
I have always admired how some artists are able to exaggerate certain features while keeping the character recognizable. Political cartoonists are especially good at this.
This started out as a simple black and white line drawing in my sketchbook. I added some gray tones and highlights once I scanned it and brought it into Photoshop. Most of my work tends to be polished vector illustrations, but I decided to go in a different direction with this one and include the initial pencil sketch marks in the final art. If you look closely at the forehead, you’ll even see lines from another drawing on the other side of the page showing through.
