Stan and Ollie! ©2011 Tom Richmond

Since I missed last week’s SotW, this week it’s a two-for-one! In honor of writer extraordinaire Mark Evanier‘s ongoing series “Great Photos of Stan Laurel and/or Oliver Hardy” on his blog, here is my take on the Great Stan and Ollie. These might be the two most caricatured/cartooned film stars in history.


  1. Kelly McNutt says:

    Ha! That’s awesome. I just watched “Great Guns” (1941) with our 7 year old this weekend – her first Laurel & Hardy film. She liked the blackbird in Oliver’s trousers the best, it seems.

  2. Stevie Jensen says:

    Ha Ha! Most excellent work

  3. Brian Benson says:

    Awesome!! It’s funny how i can see the principles from your book in this drawing. I wish i had the confidence to push Stan’s mouth so far under his nose.

  4. This is Funny. Dear Tom Welcome to come my Website See the Person, who I loved with His Caricatures 🙂

  5. Enrico says:

    You didn’t draw the lips: very interesting solution.

  6. Paul Fricke says:

    Love it, Tom! Well done.
