iggs.

k, so i haven't posted any sketches this week, but it's for a good reason: i did a really rough sketch of this guy's face, but then looking at his weird, deformed, lumpy body, i decided i had to go all out and make it my next full-blown, fully-realized caricature painting. i finished this in a total of maybe 7 or 8 hours, all in sketchbook pro.

let the ugly parade continue, with our grand master, iggy pop!

some guys are pretty indiscriminate with their hatred, casually tossing it about like so much salad.
