To answer a super common question about marker brand: I use most brands of markers and only a few select shades. But, all and even the best brands make gross colors and plenty of them. Never buy marker sets. It's decisions about color combinations, line and application not brand.

You should be carried around by he-man art slaves.

I am always amazed how you marker fanatics can create such wonderful thick/thin lines? Do you go back in and change them? Or should we practice swooshing?

Julián höek said...

hi Marlo, awesome drawings! you are soooo good!
any way...i have this question about marker brands....witch one smells better? and if i want to wet the point of the marker with my tounge (you know, all good artist do that) witch brand tastes better? i think that's an important one!

Cool. You went all Hirschfeld on those guys. And I love that drawing of you with a guitar. It's simple yet elagent. Nice work.

MikeSnj said...

Great update. I love your work.

Kali Fontecchio said...

The self portrait reminds me of George Harrison for some reason- I have no idea.

You're pretty!

dibujador said...

Hahahhah. It's been awhile since I've been here. Really great sketches! I laughed out loud:)

Vincent Waller said...

Great stuff as always. Are doing mighty B stuff? or is that test stuff
? Stuff stuff with stuff! Witness my Mighty Vocabulary!Stuff

Gary Clair said...

I love it when you post. :)

I can spot your style from across the studio! A guy at work was looking at your blog.. and I was like "Hey!! I know that!!"

..and if you get carried around by he-man art slaves.. I want a piggy back ride from you.. for comedy effect.

Nico said...

your art is so cool that it gave me gen. herpes

I'm jealous that you and Nico are friends!

Amir, yes

Emily said...

Love you Marlo, thanks for the 'bon voyage' and the sharks!!!!!
Oh yeah-- wait til we get back and you see how fat we both are.
You can draw our distended bellied in gross colors with your unimportant brands of markers....xoxox

lastangelman said...

1.)Love Marlo Guitar Blob! Hmmm... that could be a new band name, yes?
2.)Funny gross nurse(?) thing ... slowly ... slowly ... slower
3.)Ye Gods, are all your males in your corral living caricatures? Beautiful colors. I may cry.

pumml said...

So happy to see a new post. They just get better and better! I'm always so impressed with your ability to push the caricatures and your brilliant linework and colors. Is there a marker brand out there that can make me as good an artist as you? Copic perhaps? :)

dan szilagyi said...

these like the rest of your work Marlo are awesome!
be back for more!
cheers~

Marlo, you are a golden Goddess! I admire your talent and your stunning beauty. And I bet you could have a shit ton of boyfriends if you wanted.

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Excellent! Really funny stuff!

Matt Tamaru said...

Oh jeeze! these are the most!

Jorge Garrido said...

Holy shit, Marlo, you get better and better each time you post. Even that Mighty B story board is genius, I hope the show is able to translate your ideas and thoughts onto the screen. I mean look at that tooth! It's genius!

You should actually have your own show, instead of Amy Poehler.

Jenny said...

These should all be in a gallery. The hoity-toity kind.
I don't see them as 'caricatures' any more, just really beautiful paintings(not that one should make distinctions). Wowza.

The second one down looks like a menu cover for a restaurant that might be called called "The Cretinous Cowboy"

Wow Marlo, great work!

When did you start boarding for "the Mighty B!" over at Nick? Love your drawings of Bessie and Happy.

Again, they all look great. Always love work.

Booo Tooons Ltd. said...

Do you see people the way you draw them when you begin to sketch, or do you work it out as you go?

Like, is there a translation process where you take what you see and turn it into what it becomes or is it just magic?

As always, gweat stuff, gweat stuff.
