A good Head for Radio


A digital sketch of Radiohead's frontman Thom Yorke, drawn in Photoshop.

My entry for this week's Illustration Friday topic- Phobia. Thom has numerous- Claustrophobia, Thanatophobia (fear of death), Aviophobia (fear of flying) but most of all, Motorphobia (he's terrified of cars).

I love your blog. I check it often. Extremely inspiring body of work. Your caricatures really exemplify how fun the drawing process can be.

(If you're ever at a loss for a tutorial topic I'd love to know how you set-up your blog galleries (I'm sure other blogger/artists would too). My html skills are weak, so trial and error is mostly error.)
