Final syndicate cartoon of the week

Here's one that went through several phases before I was happy with it. You'll notice that I enlarged the figure during the final rendering and tightened up the caricature. One thing I learned in doing this caricature is how important it is to make his eyes dark. They're sunk into his skull pretty far, giving him a kind of caveman look. Until I figured that out, the cartoon wasn't really "there."

Here's the rough:

I added the White House, the chicken, and his signature (rented) red pickup on the fly for emphasis. Enjoy.
