All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

A caricature of Jack Nicholson in Stanley Kubrick's movie of "The Shining".

I wanted to avoid the cliched Jack caricature of the iconography of Jack (forehead, grin, eyebrows, shades, cigar) and thought that painting him in character was the best way to go about it.

Sylar caricature

A caricature of Zachary Quinto as Sylar from the TV show "Heroes". I got bored with the show somewhere in the middle of the first season, but always thought this character had an interesting face.

More Mathilda May

A couple of quicker, looser Mathilda May pictures.

The first is based on a still from the movie "Naked Tango", which isn't as pervy a movie as it sounds. It is a beautifully photographed film, though, and I would recommend it to fans of good cinematography.

I don't know where the second one is from, but I wanted to show an older, and still beautiful, Mathilda. The actual size close up shows how I attempted to capture the character that time has added to her face.
