Sketch o’the Week

October 19th, 2011 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I chose this week’s sketch subject to make my wife The Lovely Anna and my youngest daughter, The Effervescent Gabrielle, happy as they are both big fans of the TV show Castle. Nathan Fillion is notoriously hard to caricature. His features are elusive in the same way a young William Shatner‘s features were… at different angles/expressions his face looks very different, almost like another person. His chin, for example, seems to seem quite large in any angle where his head is tilted back even slightly, but in a profile or more upright angle you see it is actually a rather small chin, but it sticks out quite far. There are other examples. I’ve found only a 3/4 angle works with this guy.


  1. Well you surely did a great job at it as I recognized him right away. I would say his mouth/nose combo is a bit unique to him so we can always play with that, which you did perfectly!

    Just got the email your book was shipped last night. Can’t wait to get it a drool all over it. erm.. 🙂
