This Jack Black was a really fun piece to design and paint. It was done for a Facebook weekly competition called "Caricaturama Showdown 3000." I have been a huge Tenacious D fan for years (despite their small body of work). This was done in oils on a stretched linen canvas, 24 x 30 inches. Because of his rock persona, which is essentially parody of classic rock and hard metal gods, I chose to create something like you might have seen on a vintage metal album cover, ripe with demonic sexuality and a few phallic symbols here and there.

I haven't done a lot of story-based caricature illustrations. My portfolio is full of mostly portrait style head-shots. So I would love to devote more time to stuff like this, with more background and narrative involved.




And a few details...
