Sketch o’the Week

Jack Black ©2009 Tom Richmond

This week’s subject is actor Jack Black, drawn from a smallish picture out of an entertainment magazine. Black is heavy set but interestingly his face does not have a lot of fat on it. On the contrary it’s quite bony except for a suggestion of a puffy sort of underbite. He was brilliant in “Tropic Thunder”.

    Awesome! you rock Tom!! sometimes the saying “i just draw it like i see it” still seems hard!! great job!!

  2. Joe Bluhm says:

    This is an incredible sketch, Tom. Great suggestion of volume with so few lines. Great work.

  3. Nick Jarvis says:

    By the way, the song from the Karate Kid “you’re the best around” runs through my mind when i see your work, i actually sing it in my head when i get on your site. thanks again Tom

    Great sketch Tom! Jack Black has those very animated eyes .
    He could keep his mouth expressionless and rattle of 80 different expressions with his eyes alone. Can only imagine the wrinkles around his yes when he ages!

    this is impressive….very very nice !!! fantastic work, you are for me a reference!!!!

  6. Brad says:

    Awesome sketch! He is tough to do that is for sure, but you nailed him. Best Jack Black I have seen yet. Strange, I dont see too many attempts on him….

    Great Tom – I know the ref pic you used. Nailed him!

  8. Sagan Lacy says:

    I agree with Joe. The expression is great… it’s almost neutral, but reveals the true Jack Black insanity nonetheless.


Just added dates for Atlanta and London, spots still available in Dallas and Toronto!
