Every once and a while, I'd like to showcase a FACE THE WEEK guest artist.

This week's guest is GERRY FOURNIER.

Gerry has the uncanny ability to caricature people with the least amount of lines. His drawings are truly wonderful, witty, and spot on. He always manages to capture whom ever it is he is drawing.

This however, is a fabulous collage he created a few years back, of yours truly.

I think it speaks for itself!

If you would like to contribute a j-peg of a head and shoulders FACE THE WEEK type of illustration, feel free to send it to me at


There is not too much to say about this week's FACE THE WEEK. Unlike previous posts, this one is straight from the sketch book. The goal here was to try and create a face that looked like it came from another era, possibly the 1940's. This guy looks like he might be from Europe somewhere.

I think the paisley tie does a lot to set the time period.

I see this type of guy around town a lot.

He seems to travel with others who look a lot like him, and generally wears a t-shirt enblazened with either a superhero, a video-game character, or a classic animation icon. Baggy cargo cut-offs, and shiny trainers complete the look. He always seems to be carrying a slurpy, or an expensive designer coffee, and is most often seen behind a lap-top, were ever he might be found.

He seems harmless enough, but I see him everywhere, travelling in groups of 4 or 5, almost always without female company.

This one is based on former co-worker.

I saw this guy in a coffee shop, while on a sketching expedition. Everything about him was red or brown or beige, including his personal colouring and all his clothing. It was as if he had been art directed!
