Meryl Streep Caricature Sketch

Caricatures, Illustration

Today it’s all about the Queen of the cinema, Mrs. Meryl Streep.  She’s up for an Oscar for her role as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.  It’s another movie I have yet to see, but I’m blown away when I see screen shots from the movie and how she transforms into her character.  After seeing her in Julie and Julia, I now look at pictures of the real Julia Childs and think she’s the actress.  Meryl Streep is the real Julia.  It’s all so confusing.

For my next caricature, I’m going to tackle Gary Oldman.

Glenn Close Caricature Sketch

Here’s a sketch of Oscar nominee Glenn Close.  She’s up for Actress in a Leading Role for her movie Albert Nobbs.  I haven’t seen the movie, but I know that with her, just like fellow nominee Meryl Streep, it’s a great performance.

Soon after starting the caricature of Mrs. Close, I found myself quickly emphasizing the mouth.  When she smiles it literally appears to go from ear to ear.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Since I already mentioned Meryl Streep, I guess I’ll sketch her for Monday’s caricature.
