Sketch o’the Week

September 12th, 2012 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

It will be interesting to see how many people recognize this week’s SotW subject. She’s not famous for being on TV or in the movies, but I am sure many thousands of people will know exactly who she is. My only hint is to say I’ve been flying on a lot of airplanes lately.

UPDATE: For all of you hopelessly guessing subjects who in no way resemble the above caricature, the drawing above is Katherine Lee aka “Deltalina”, the “star” of Delta Airlines pre-flight safety video:

If you’ve been on a Delta flight in the last 4-5 years, you’ll recognize her. The video is oddly arresting and entertaining, and Deltalina has a very interesting look, especially her mouth.

    Chrissy Faessen “Rock the Vote!”

  6. Mike says:

    excellent job! it looks just like her, makes me want to buckle up and take a nap.

  7. Joe Groshek says:

    She’s the reason I pay attention now to the flight attendants instructions.
    Sexy, and with that scolding type finger waving about smoking not being allowed.
    I always wait for that moment.

    Well done, Tom!

  8. Lar says:

    Hahahahaha!!! Tom, you’re terrific!! 🙂 That’s my fave safety instruction video. I wish more airlines had more fun with their boring instructions 🙂

  13. Jon Herman says:

    Great drawing, Tom! She’s spooky in the video though, speaking as she does of disaster and mayhem and what to do, all the while holding that fabulous smile.

    No, No, No… Superb Capture Tom 🙂 She is Perfect Figure for Caricature!!

  15. nunz says:

    HA! I usually fly American but flew Delta to Jamaica in July. With the connecting flights I saw that video 4 times. It was bugging me trying to figure out where I’d seen that face until you mentioned flying in your hint. Great job!!
