Have you done a matching caricature of Mr. Corbett?

It was for a DVD cover for a documentary on Mr Barker.... never got to do Mr Corbett. Seems kinda wrong to do one without the other though, doesn't it!

Excellent image of Ronnie!
You've really captured his essence and the humour he was responsible for in The Two Ronnies. (A show I
absolutely loved watching when I was growing up... all hail the genius of dvds!)

No probs...The weirdest thing is, when I was a super broke student, I went to the Salvos for food, and they gave me a bunch of food, and, quite unbelievably...a Ronnie Barker DVD...It was bizarre. Brilliant stuff!

What a lovely rendering of one of my favourite performing artists. He was a genius, pure and not-so-simple, and a gent to boot.

You do a such a wonderful job with these "pencil Sketches" I have to ask do you think could do one with Ronnie corbett or better still with Barker and Corbett and the news-desk? It would be fantastic if you could that.

Awesome etc...

Thanks! Really depends on what the client is after - I enjoy quick pencil characatures, but rarely paint them up unless its for an actual job.
Cheers mate!
