Submitted this caricature to Jason Seiler for his podcast interview of Mike Marino. Truly an honor that it even got shown. Just amazes me that we live in the age of the internet and connections like this can be made. These two guys are at the top of their respective fields.
If you don’t know Mike Marino, he is a modern day Carpeaux with the attitude of Bernini. You can tell he is a student of art, has/does put in a lot of hard work, and is a humble guy about it all. Really inspiring stuff.
When I was working on this, Ashley (my wife) asked, “Who is that guy?” with big doe eyes. I was forced to say “He’s a nobody. A real schmuck and dirtball.” but she knew better. Needed to add some gore so she would stop checking him out over my shoulder. I could probably take him in arm wrestling. Maybe not. The man does sculpture so he’s probably got some good grip.
Here is the podcast where my work was shown. I feel like a 12 year old boy that Jason Seiler had some input on it. It’s at 1:12.
