Sketch o’the Week

Two politicians

The reference

Well, it finally happened. Yesterday was the first day since the inception of The MAD Blog that there was no post. Not even a Dreaded Deadline Demon. I will plead exception as I was trapped in airports with delayed flights and missed connections and did not arrive back home until midnight last night. Oh well.

In the meantime here’s a couple of super-fast sketches of some of the “political heads” I’m working on for this iPhone app project. I did these sitting in the airport, about 3-5 minutes each, and they pretty small at only about 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall. They will be inked (sort of) and then colored for the project. I do the sketches for these very loose and rough intending to make corrections when I ink them, so some of the relationships of the features will change in the final and of course the features themselves will be much more accurately drawn.

In case you are wondering, these two guys are Rep. Glen Thompson, Pennsylvania 5th District and Rep. Pedro Pierluisi, Puerto Rico (non voting member of the House of Representatives).
