Sketch o’the Week

September 29th, 2010 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

This week’s sketch is of a rather obscure subject. I was catching up on some Netflix movies in the home theater the other day and I watched “28 Weeks Later”, the not so great sequel to the pretty good “28 Days Later” apocalyptic horror film. The character of Tammy was played by a young English actress with the unusual name of Imogen Poots. She had a very haunting look with heavy eyelashes/eyeliner and icy turquoise eyes, a strongly angular face shape with a distinctive nose and bruised looking lips. Quite an arresting look that inspired me to draw her. Anyway, I did this one partly from the memory of the disheveled look of her “28 Weeks Later” character and partly from a few photos from teh interwebby. It’s a brutal caricature of a quite lovely girl and I’m sure her mom would yell at me should she see it.

    Luckily, that girl doesn’t have an A at the end of her first name…
    And in today’s news, Imagena Poots-
    EWWWW!!!! Your gonna what?

    Yes… her name is odd alright. I’m assuming it’s her actual name and not a stage name based on the notion that no one would choose that as a stage name. Given that assumption is correct, the old adage comes to mind: Three things you can’t pick are your name, your relatives and your nose in civilized company.
