This week’s sketch is of “The King”, rock and roll legend Elvis Presley. I’ve always found Elvis kind of a hard subject, I think mainly because I have this mental image of what he looks like and it doesn’t really match up with his actual features. If anyone wants some inspiration drawing Elvis, check out the blog of fellow Minnesota caricaturist Zack Wallenfang. He has been doing something really fun for the last several months that he calls “Elvis of the Day”. Each day he does a different drawing of Elvis. He’s up to 177 so far, but I see he’s fallen off the wagon in actually posting them every day, and does it instead in bunches. Great idea, though. He’ll have to publish a book, “365 Days of Elvis” followed by a lawsuit from Graceland.
