Bonus Sketch o’the Week

February 16th, 2012 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

Well, this is more of a retouch rather than a bonus sketch. I dug out this old sketch of Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, when I needed to put a bunch of pictures of recognizable overweight celebrities in the background of the splash page of the Mike & Molly parody I did for the last issue of MAD. I did a VERY quick colorizing job on the black and white pencil sketch with the above results. The image printed very tiny in the magazine (about 1/2 inch square), thus the very loose paint job. Shatner is notoriously hard to caricature, and I think the color adds a lot to the likeness.

  2. Bill Karis says:

    Oh, Captain, my Captain…….

    The dude’s going to be 81 in March! He may be fat, but he must be doing SOMETHING right! Oh, and I loved his recent “farewell” commercial for Priceline…where he bids his fans good-bye, then plunges from a bridge in a bus and blows up. Classic Shat.

    I think this one is cool because when I got my copy of your book, this one of Bill was the original piece of artwork you included! It will be treasured always!

  5. Robin Crowley says:

    Just amazing!, likeness is right on! 🙂

  6. Amazing! I love this drawing!
