How does it feel to one of the top caricature artists of all time?

Krissy said...

bwah-hahahaha!!! I love the vein on her ta-tas...nice touch.

I feel better now that I've had my Marlo fix. Your art is way too addicting.

Uncle Phil said...

wow.

Piotr said...

beyond a doubt, gloriousness. i need to get back into gear, so i can draw you:P

Sean (53AN) Gardner said...

I totally wish I could have made it this, great stuff!!!

Jeff Wong said...

Your stuff is so wonderfully cruel, like mid-period Scarfe (I'm reminded of his Enoch Powell and Ian Fleming caricatures)--always a delight.

Sean Worsham said...

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA, I love the look for Kristen!!! X-D

More Ha Ha's for her Ta Ta's HAHHAHAHHAHHHAHAHAHHHHHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHHAH!!!!

I just fell off my chair.

The other pic reminds me of that guy from the sitcom, Newhart, "Hi I'm Larry, this is my brother Daryl and my other brother Daryl" XD Great use of sickly colors and surrealist shapes to the point where they are like calligraphy.

If Pixar or Disney were smart they should hire you to at least do concept art.

Kristen McCabe said...

We got our Cripple on, didn't we?

I love my Kristencature. The veiny boobies are very accurate.

lastangelman said...

Emily said...

Pat McMicheal said...

Holy Crap...Please DON"T ever draw me..my fragile ego couldn't take it!
You are soooo talented Marlo.

Dave Pez said...

I bet people with self confidence issues flock to be drawn by you. Those are really funny drawing Marlo. Wish you were drawing them in California instead.

Mike Nassar said...

hahahahahhahahahahhahahha. yes. these are the bestest.

A.M.Bush said...

Haha, that looks just like Kristen (no offense to Kristen). I never got a chance to see that drawing at Cripplecon, I was um...recovering.

chrisallison said...

Charlie Bink said...

Imagine if those pictures were on a CD cover and were an accurate representation of the music on the album.

Beast said...

Wheres the third one you did. The kid in the bonnet. that was the best.

A.M.Bush said...

Haha, that looks just like Kristen (no offense to Kristen). I never got
a chance to see that drawing at Cripplecon, I was um...recovering.

Vincent Waller said...

Yay! More great drawings!

Hammerson said...

Kristen's boobs are growing out of her neck?! She must be from another planet... and these drawings are absolutely out of this world. Stupendous, collosal,
phantasmagoric stuff!

Marcelo Vignali said...

Wow, these are vicious and brutal caricatures, but I love 'em.

Chloe Cumming said...

What is this place of cripples and neck boobies? I wish to seek this place.

Marlo Meekins said...

Cripple Con is an underground artist's event in Kansas City. The intent was to make art without the creative bounds of most artist competitions. Len, the master of ceremonies, was bound to a wheelchair but ensured the event was unbounded by morals. (the convention blurred the line between rendered aborted babies/pussies et cetera and fine art/music)

syahrulfikri said...

syah.

Tony Akins said...

Wow...
in that post-apocalyptic world I hope the caricature artists don't rule.
Awesome work MM, as usual!
Your fairy appearance in "Jack" is still happening...just won't be for a few issues :~)
Rock on, Girl.

Marlo Meekins said...

Booo Tooons Ltd. said...

YOU DELETED MY POETRY?!?

Oh, well. Not the first time a hot artist girl from Philly rejected me.

I'll see if I can find them in my temp files, and if not, I'll try to re-post them from memory.

"Beat the Haiku Out Of You ( renamed )"

by Trevor Thompson ( age three and a half )

Marlo's markers make
Your eyes do extra work to
Take in the details


"The Chick Cartoonist Action Squad Limerick"

by Trevor Thompson ( Mrs. )

There once was a female cartoonist,
In fact, several, and nudists
They drew naughty parts, and played topless darts
And attracted several drawing enthus'ists

Here's a poem I wrote that has nothing to do with you:

"Rhymetown"

by Trevor Thompson ( deceased )

Once upon a time, in a town called Rhymetown
Everyone spoke in rhymes
And if you did not, you had to just lie down
And say nothing at all, like a mime

Ronald was a man who did things his way
He did not want to do that
"I shall not rhyme," is what he would say
"Rhyming is stupid and I hate it. That's it.
I'm moving to Glasgow and become a tree surgeon."

That Ronald's a rebel, yessirree.

Your hair is red like bloodheart, your eyes gleem like sapphire.

The combination with your smile helps me realize my desire.

I don't know what it is that makes my chest burn like fire, but your art and looks are definitely what inspires.

The more I draw the more I see, the one who writes and draws for this blog is what brings the inspirado in me....

Booo Tooons Ltd. said...

That caricature of Kristen; the hair color reminds me of peacock feathers. That must be tough to pull off.

flaviano said...

carlo guillot said...

HI Marlo
Hope that you post new stuff pretty soon.
In the meantime, I wanna tell you that I've just finished my cartoony short film.
It's right here.
As you are such a great artist, any comment or advice will be really appreciated.
John and Eddie liked it, hope you like it too.
