Here’s a few images I did for the September 2015 production of Annie Get Your Gun by Carlinghow Theatre Company. I also played Colonel Buffalo Bill Cody in the show too! I got to wear a hat, it was fun.
Here’s the advert I designed for the production (phone numbers removed):
There were two posters that were used onstage as part of the show. Here’s the first one featuring the handsome and dashing leading man, Mr Frank Butler!
And here’s the poster depicting our leading lady, Miss Annie Oakley!
These posters were printed at about six feet high for the final production! Many thanks to G Jones and J Griff for the use of their lovely faces.
First off, if you haven’t been watching the superb Masters of Sex then get on it right away; it’s breathtakingly good when it’s on form (which it usually is.) Secondly, here is a portrait of Michael Sheen as the eponymous Bill Masters. I’m pretty happy with it. Look, I’m smiling – 🙂

Sort of a caricature. Today wasn’t such a waste after all.

I watched Anchorman 2 last night. I drew this picture today. The two events may be interrelated.

Being the generous sort of soul I am I decided to forgoe my nightly sleep and instead work to bring you this caricature of cheery pop sensation Morrisey in his heyday. The problem with working this late/early is that my inner critic decides to go on strike and I can’t tell whether what I’m doing is actually any good. Anyway, don’t say I never give you anything.

Greetings humans, demigods and internet dwellers. Yesterday one of my friends asked me to draw a picture of Malvo, Billy-Bob Thornton’s character from Fargo, then threatened to hit me if I didn’t. So, cowering from his physical prowess I set about doing this illustration. Here you are Karl, enjoy.

I think this pic would look awesome on a T-Shirt.
Ho ho, just a little wordplay there for you. Here’s a picture I did of myself staring in to the sunset or admiring a turkish bonfire, perhaps. It’s not a bad likeness but I think I might’ve made myself look better than I actually am – you can’t see the spots here. OH VANITY.
