Kristen Chenoweth Caricature by JayFosgitt Kristen Chenoweth Caricature by JayFosgitt
For those who wonder who this celebrity is, allow me to clarify:

Kristen Chenoweth is a Broadway actress who orinated the role of Sally in the musical "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown". I'm a big fan of the musical as well as her standout performance in it, so I chose to use her role as the basis for her caricature. To draw it, I used a brush marker to attempt to replicate cartoonist Charles Schulz's loose drawing style.

My current involvement in the theatre is probably what inspired me to do this particular piece. I'm pretty happy with it, especially my drawing of Snoopy in the background, which I hope assists the Peanuts theme of the caricature.

That's fabulous. It looks like her too, mostly in the face (I'm used to the recent Kristen, so the frizzy hair throws me off)

Thanks! The hair was actually a curly wig she wore to portray Sally Brown!

I figured it was. I'm just used to the Glinda Chenoweth, more than anything.

The caricature is great, but what I really love is the way you drew Snoopy - perfect 1960's-era Charles Schulz.

You have no idea how cool that last statement has made you. I used a Peanuts strip from the 1960's as my reference! You've either got one hell of an eye for Peanuts chronology or you're a precog! Quick, how much change do I have in my pocket?!

Uh...37 cents and a Subway receipt? Oh, wait, that's me...

I own the book "Peanuts: A Golden Celebration", so I've gotten pretty good at identifying the way Schulz's style evolved over 50 years. I think his stuff from the 1960s looks the best, but I also like a lot of his work from the early-to-mid 1970s too. It felt more fluid and lively than a lot of his later strips did.

I own that book, too! I'm friends with cartoonist Greg Evans who draws the comic strip Luann, and he likes to rub it in my face that he was friends with Schulz and got him to autograph the book for him personally!

I agree with you...Schulz's 60's style was probably his best. Much as I love his shakier style of later years, I know that it bothered Schulz because it wasn't so much intentional as it was unavoidable due to old age.

By the way, not too far off on the contents of my pocket!
