I really enjoyed working on this one and would like to thank Richard at the NYT for giving me the freedom to exaggerate and create the characters in the most natural way for me. It’s great working for people who let you do what you do. As the norm of late, I only had two days to complete this one. I didn’t think I’d be able to finish a painting in the way that I wanted so I decided to combine drawing and painting . . . has a nice life to it that I really enjoy.
This is a Freud that I hadn’t yet shared here. I did this while in Vienna a couple of weeks ago where I was teaching a workshop on caricature, drawing and painting and the process of illustration and working for publications.
