Merry Christmas!


A little late maybe but here's what Santa brought me for Xmas! An original drawing by Uli Meyer that appeared on his (now sadly deceased) blog (RIP). The other original drawing is master caricaturist Ric Machin's rough drawing for a painting he made of DeNiro as Travis Bickle in TAXI DRIVER. Interesting article on Ric & his art here:

The De Niro illustration looks like it was completed on a piece of cardboard.
Is this the case?

The DeNiro pic is on cardboard coloured paper- in 2 pieces. Ric chose to exaggerate the arm I guess? Gotta get that framed too soon. It's an unusual shape though -
