Sketch Week- Bob Dylan

September 24th, 2012 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I am kicking off a week of nothing but sketches with Minnesota native Bob Dylan. This is actually a study for an upcoming job.


  1. Rich Powell says:

    HE’s a snappy dresser these days, that’s for sure.

  2. Chesley White says:

    Nice. I tried to draw him once, turned out more like Vincent Price than Bob Dylan. (Have the same problem with Jimmy Fallon- Looks more like William Shatner than Fallon!!) Keep up the great work!

    • Tom says:

      This is a challenging angle to draw him at, because the large, hook nose and small chin make him a natural for a forward-leaning angle, looking up at you from under his brows.

  3. Ken King says:

    Hey Tom, nice Dylan.

    You going to the Rush concert tonight?

    I love the Geddy Lee caricature in your book…ever sketched the rest of the band?

    Keep up the great work.

    Hey Tom great rendering is a little bit tricky to manage the light source of this one, just awesome!!! . Take care.

  5. Tom Siler says:

    I see a certain “Dignity” in this caricature. Great Job!
