ABC WEDNESDAY- C IS FOR CELEBRITY CARTOON, VICTORIA BECKHAM, BY MY CELEBRITY ,CARTOONIST ,COHABITOR


Enough C's for you .

Celebrity Cartoon, By Celebrity, Cartoonist/Caricaturist and my Cohabitor


No, Victoria Beckham, Posh Spice isn't in Ramsey, but she has been lying on my living room floor for the last few hours. Figuratively speaking that is, on paper. Gary is now doing David Beckham as I type this up. It was quite interesting watching her taking shape. What starts as a rough sketch of disjointed lines, a puzzle you can't fathom suddenly takes shape when the inner eyes are drawn, the pout, those sucked in cheeks or the flick of the hair.

What's really exciting though is seeing the Political cartoons take shape. Being privy to an editorial cartoon lampooning the Government for the BBC. Not being able to tell anyone what Gary is working on until it appears , knowing the controversy they will cause. Believe me photography is easy compared to this line of work, as many of you artisits out there will know.

So that's my C, a bevy of them. Thanks to NEW YORK, MING and his Serendipity post for giving me the idea for today's post.

Check these links for more of Gary's work. Please tell him to tidy his workstation up too, namely my floor. I need to hoover again and I wouldn't want David Beckham to me sucked up into the Dyson.

brad,boston said...

You got her!

Kelly said...

Creative!

Sally said...

What a fabulous talent Gary is! I am sure yours aren't limited to hoovering, however!

Jim said...

Great, even has the expression on her face right!

marley said...

Great post Babooshka! gary is very talented. Your text made me laugh. You said Posh had been lying on your floor, figuratively speaking. Then you tell us Gary is doing David Beckham! Figuratively speaking I hope! lol! Sorry, excuse my Carry On sense of humour!

Thanks for your kind comment. I think I'm feeling this blogging business again :)

Lake Lady said...

Super post....you two are something else! Hey, here's an idea I bet our fellow bloggers would go for: How about if Gary does a caricature of YOU????

kjpweb said...

Lake Lady got something there! :)
But your man is good! Like his style!
Great "C" on both your end!
Cheers, Klaus

mannanan said...

Awesome. All that talent under one roof. Brilliant artist. Brilliant photographer and what a great 'C'

Clueless in boston said...

Great post and great caricature.

Knoxville Girl said...

Certainly Captivating and Clever, that Gary of yours. And you are too, to Co-opt him for your C post. Though I think he was generous with Sticktoria's Cleavage.

leslie said...

Fabulous caricature! I'll have to check out your co-habitor's other blogs one day.

USelaine said...

Poor Posh. I mean, really, she looks so unhappy! Not so much in this excellent cartoon (she looks like she means business though), but in every picture I ever have seen of her. Can you even imagine her getting the giggles? Or really tucking in to some fish and chips and laughing about the one that drops down her shirt? I hope some day she'll lighten up and not take herself so seriously, but I guess she'll have to find that for herself. Poor thing.

Sorry, you really got me going with this one.

Kate said...

Talented cartoonist! Love both her figure and her facial expression!

Virginia said...

Great cartoons and love your commentary. Thanks , I had a good laugh.

I always admire cartoonist for their ability to render the subject's personality and state of being in humour and irony ... Those spotlights at the background well respresents the "celebrity-ness" of Victoria Beckham. Great choice for ABC Wednesday post, Babooshka.

Louis la Vache said...

Good play on the C theme, Babooshka - and a great Capture of Posh...

Tash said...

definitely not the swing bridge.
Very cool cartoon by a very, very talented cartoonist. Saw his blog - love it.

Marcel said...

I too admire cartoonists. I often have what I think is a good idea for a political carton, but lack the talent to draw my idea. Gary obviously is very, very talented.

Lawstude said...

lots of c indeed. you deserve an award for most c in a single pic. lols. great job.

Olivier said...

très bon ;o)) mais c'est surtout son mari qui est connu.
very good ;o)) but it is her husband who is known.

Liz said...

He is a very talented man!

That's a great C post.

Blue said...

Very creative.
And, a good capture by Gary!

Gail's Man said...

That's a good cartoon. Can't stand P & B at all, so anything that shows them up for what they are is fine by me.

I also detest Jordan & Peter Andre, so perhaps they could be the next subject for satirising!

Aileni said...

Inspired choice though I confess I would not cross the road to look at the real one.

Greyscale Territory said...

What a fun post! Refreshing!

Denise said...

Yes, I agree she does always look so unhappy! Money eh? What does it mean?
Great capture!

Gary said...

Brilliant talent your co-habitor has!

He's got her down to a 'C'!!

Great stuff.

Great capture - Nice post

Mo said...

You are both extremely talented. Oh I do wish Posh would close her mouth.

Bibi said...

He's sure caught her personality....

Bear Naked said...

Very clever and creative.
Both of you,

Bear((( )))

Hilda said...

Oh wow! Gary is good! I think he got her just right too. ;D

JAMJARSUPERSTAR said...

Is it just me though... what does Victoria Beckham have to do with politics? Maybe I've missed the boat with this one - I don't really pay attention to slebs.

nice cartoon, pity it had to be of posh spice

AphotoAday said...

Living with an artist must be interesting (if not challenging at times)... I worked with artists for about 15 years (at an art supply store) and it was quite an experience keeping up on their projects...

Daryl said...

What fun!

Texas Travelers said...

You did a great job with C.
Gary did a great job with the cartoon. It is perfect. Boy, what a distraction here in the States.

Thanks for the visit,
Troy and Martha

Kim said...

I would have never thought of that for C, great thinking. He is a very talented man. I love art, but I have never been good with drawing people, he did wonderfully.

RuneE said...

That was an original C! The drawing was even better than the lady. I have a daughter who draws cartoons as sideline, so I have seen this happen - and know the difficulty.

And thank you for the teaching me the term "cohabitor". I didn't know that such a term existed in English. In Norway the corresponding term is very usual.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Excellent 'C' post...
Hope this finds you well and in good health with good weather.. ..

chanpheng said...

Nice C's! My ABC Weds. contribution is here. Hope you enjoy it!

magiceye said...

babooshka said...

This is a great "C" post, and so unique....and I feel like I've been let in on a state secret or something! We see a lot of the Beckhams on TV around here...since they moved across the pond and into my (sort of, very generally speaking) neighborhood of Southern California. From what I've seen, your Cartoonist/Caricaturist Cohabitor has captured her to a T...or would that be a C?? (and now I'm wondering where that expression "to a T" comes from).

Chuck Pefley said...

Somehow I can imagine Gary's email is rife with critical disagreeing comments quite often. Thick skin is definitely required ... like a crocodile.
