Meet Medeski

A friend of mine, who also received The Moskowitz Family Holiday Card, wanted me to draw his dog Medeski as a caricature. I did my usual thang and started with a very quick drawing of the pouch, and as usual, it turned out to be more of a doggie portrait. I decided to take this guy a little further for the final drawing because Josh told me that he wanted caricature, so a caricature is what he'll get. After the outline, I was sceptical of the final result and wondered if I would be wasting my time. It looked pretty strange and my girlfriend Natalie seemed to agree. She asked me to color in the eyes and that's when I took a picture of it. I had nothing better to do, so I pushed on and came up with the picture of Medeski below.























The background planning took a long time just because I really liked the way Medeski turned out and I didn't want to ruin it with a flat monochromatic background like I did wit the practice sketch. I wanted the dog to be pushed off the paper just like his snout, so I decided to make it funky. This design should compliment the super bright green walls where Josh has chosen to hang it. I just hope he likes it enough to do so.
