Guru on Paper: Andrei Herasimchuk

This afternoon I needed a brake from all things university. I decided to leave
the digital world for what it is, momentarily, of course. The last time I seriously
used a pencil and a sheet of paper must have been more than two years ago —
shame on me! So today I decided it was time to pick up that pencil again and
what better than to immortalize my new found favorite guru: Andrei

I’ve never actually met Andrei in person, and all I had were the
photographs on his website
. Apart from the limited resources I really need
some more practice drawing. Yes, I know his head is huge — that’s
the whole point, from a stylistic point of view that is, of course. I’m
not much of a “one stroke” cartoonist (if I can call myself one),
as you can probably see. So, are there going to be any future editions? Well,
that’s not sure. First I need to seriously practice! But I had fun either

    Very nice. I especially like the “Scarlett Letter” Adobe logo on the shirt.

    Glad you had fun. It’s nice to get away from the computer every once in a while.

    Nice. I’d be all for the future editions – that’d be cool!

    Not sure what your background is, but I think that’s a pretty snazzy illustration – you could make one heckuva living drawing caricatures at any number of tourist destinations worldwide.

    As for who to draw next, maybe you should give Nielsen a chance to “retort.”

    Eliot: thanks for the compliment; makes me feel all warm inside. My background is in economics and informatics (about page). I have no formal training is design or drawing as such and I’m not sure if I envision a future in drawing caricatures. That said I have great fun doing them and Nielsen is definitively a great suggestion.
