VIBE illustration

VIBE Magazine is doing it's annual "tabloid" issue and I was lucky enough to do a caricature of three rappers towards the back of the magazine. This was a crunch job but I had a great Art Director to work with and as I've said before, it makes it so much more enjoyable, successful, and easy.

This is in the January issue of VIBE, and is on newsstands now.

Very tight piece. Curious how fast was the turnaround on this crunch job?
Cheers,

These last two are great!

Joe Bluhm said...

Thanks, Vin!

Mark.. I am simply inspired by your fantastic work. Believe me!

Meesimo, this job was about a 40 hr turnaround. I put about 15+ hours into it.

Mr. Bluhm I must say this is amazing! You caught them better than anyone i've seen try! You are becoming one of the kings of caricatures man! What would it take for a fellow artist to get drawn by you?

Joe Bluhm said...

Thanks, Big Sam! Drop me an email and we'll figure it out. :)
