Caricature

20150828_scan 4 For the assignment of creating a caricature, I chose Peter Cushing. His chiseled cheekbones, high forehead, and hawkish nose set him apart from other actors. I decided to do my caricature of him, not of any of his roles. And this despite being a huge Star Wars nerd.

Oh yes, his scene with Carrie Fisher on the Death Star was my absolute favorite in the entire movie. I’d wait eagerly for it, and then it was gone. I’d have to wait for the next showing to get my dose. Now I can pull it up at any time, and since it’s so available, it doesn’t have the same pull.
