...and it is David Letterman!!!

All these celebrity caricatures are @#$% great (obligatory cartoon cuss word...just in case Mom reads the blog).

Pack these things up and send them off to Art Directors (especially Steven Heller)!!!

His teeth only show up sometimes and I've seen a bunch of really great caricatures like that so I wanted to go for this other look. I'm not all the way satisfied with it but I think it looks nice. As for puttin the name on it, I always hated lookin through Entertainment weekly or a big illustration book and they show the caricature but it didn't give the name. If the caricature doesn't look like the guy putting a name on it or not putting a name on it ain't gonna make no difference, but if it does look like the guy, a name just reassures the reader that they see the same thing.

i think that, in your case the names help...and that might not be a good thing.

I think the text that you used is interesting...kinda a play on his last name, way I figure.

Did you sketch this from a pic or as you were watching the show? It's an unusual expression, nonetheless. Bravo.

Very nice lines. Definately spot on.

This is my absolute personal favorite of yours. It should go in every caricature port you assemble until people don't know who he is anymore....
