Presenting the portrait of Brad Pitt, the guy who once made women swoon as Achilles in “Troy“, who made death appear deliciously attractive in “Meet Joe Black“, and who mystified us as a reverse-aging human in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”
This portrait however, is of the Brad Pitt of today and it catches him looking older and a lot more distinguished. I was commissioned to do this portrait by a Brad Pitt Fan, and I didn’t have a choice in the matter of selecting the look, or I’d have picked Joe Black or Achilles. The requirement clearly stated that it should be a portrait of Brad Pitt of recent- and not yester-years.

Before this caricaturist was a caricaturist, for many long years, she was a portrait artist. Actually, any caricaturist worth his salt should be a good portrait artist too, because if you didn’t know the rules of facial/physical proportions, you wouldn’t know how to break them – and you can’t be a caricaturist without knowing which rules to break. In fact, most artists of all kinds begin their journey by drawing what they see around them, and only later they begin to experiment.
