A famous artist once told me "Twitter is awesome, apparently it opens the sky and makes it rain $."
This is true. This past week artist Leah Tiscione, whom I follow on Twitter contacted me, asking if I would be able to complete a few caricatures for the NY Post. She was slammed with work and wouldn't be able to take the assignment.
I was flabbergasted!! I just love that word. I've followed Leah's work for a while and was first introduced to her stuff in the greatest book known to man, "The Alphabet of Manliness" by Maddox, a comic book by Maddox and to boot she also does a ton of work for the Post.
First off I was flattered she even acknowledged my existence on Twitter and second that she even considered me to take on this assignment.
Leah put me in touch with Maureen Callahan from the NY Post and I was given the job.
It was a major crunch time job, but I wanted to "get er done!" I wanted to do a good job for Leah( couldn't make her look bad for suggesting me),
Maureen( if I pull this off, it can lead to more work), and myself, because I'm selfish(just kidding).
I pulled an all night'er and was able to complete the job and was happy with the final product.
The subject of the article I was to illustrate for was how Mitt Romney is now the punching bag of his political party for not winning the past election...basically a pinata.
Maureen pretty much laid out everything in front of me and told me what they were looking for.
|Initial Sketch, yes Sarah Palin looks like a man and Mitt looks like he had too many botox injections.|
