Wading back in

Still swamped a bit but a few stray scribbles here and there... Here's a quick caricature that came out ok of the late, great Dermot Morgan, aka "FATHER TED."

Nice.

Hehe. This sketch really captures the look of Father Ted. Right down to your choice of wallpaper.
The show is still being shown on TV here, so it's as if Dermot never left us.

Nice Job.

That is AWESOME!!!!! Father Ted is one of my favorite TV comedy shows EVER!!! You did a great job capturing Dermot Morgan's likeness. Can you do one for the other characters?

Man, that was one looooong station break, Will! I had time to run to the fridge and make a sandwich a hundred times over.

I've heard of "Father Ted" but can't say I've had the pleasure of watching it, though I should give it a try since I generally like British imports. But welcome back to the blogosphere, 'cause we missed ya'! Heck, I even quoted you over on John K's blog earlier today.

Group thanks! This series is really funny stuff-I habitually put some TV boxed set on when I am doing a lot of work and it was definitely time for FATHER TED last week. I will try my hand at some of the rest of the cast (I"ve had a local request for "Mrs. Doyle") and will have to see what happens...

BTW, this isn't the official FT awful wallpaper, but when I Googled "Awful Wallpaper" this is what came up and glad it's close enough!

Can I make a request for Father Jack?....

Glad you're back, Will. I'm looking forward to seeing you.

Hey Will. Welcome back! It felt so strange not seeing any posts from you for such a long time.

Great drawing by the way.

Austin Papageorge said...

Is it just me, or does he look like Newt Gingrich?

But it's still a wonderful drawing, Will!
