Here is a caricature of Emile Durkheim for the Cranky Sociologists blog. You can see more of these at the gallery of the Cranky Sociologists blog, with commentary by SocProf. Durkheim is one of the Big Three of sociology, along with Max Weber and Karl Marx.

Mitt Romney’s kneejerk response to the protests and the attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya, which led to the deaths of four Americans, revealed a lot about his character. All politicians have a talent for opportunism, but so few are driven by it as Romney is. It was naked ambition that overrode any respect [...]

I have added a few more drawings to the caricature gallery. In chronological order of their creation: President Obama delivering the State of the Union, Joe Biden and John Boehner behind him. Bashar al-Assad, president of Syria. Jeff Tweedy, founder of Uncle Tupelo and Wilco, and probably Alt Country Rock as a whole. Nancy Brinker, [...]

I just added four new caricatures to the relevant gallery. I have started a project of almost daily caricature work in my sketchbook for my own personal enjoyment and artistic growth.

Once again I go inside baseball with a political caricature. Today it’s Liz Cheney and Bill Kristol as dung beetles, which I fear unjustly insults dung beetles. After all, they roll balls of shit into perfect spheres, a truly impressive accomplishment for creatures with no geometric sciences to speak of. I was going to say [...]

I wrote about this tool earlier. Rendered with a humble Pilot Precise 5 pen. Those are great for sketches. I like the bite of the line work here. I wonder if I can duplicate it in a more finished product. The challenge is to not tighten up, but respond to the line you are putting [...]
