WOW a new level of Marlo...

O___O

As always these look amazing, and the painting is really interesting!! Are you going to do more? I think you draw the best hair of anyone I know. Extremely inspiring. There is no one like you! Yay Marlo!

You and Emily look beautiful and happy :)

LOVE the one in the hat.

It's beautiful, in a gross kind of way...

Tooninator said...

Marlo...you're a champ.

trevor said...

Oh, For Fuck's Sake Marlo!

You have the temerity to think you're bad?!? Either you've studied your ass off the last four weeks, or you've been holding back the really stellar stuff.

The color styling and placement are so good these look painted! The leaps made from the individuals to their drawings are wide and yet remain similar. You fucking astound me.... and you think you're no good.

I'm going to strangle you.

- trevor.

PS: How was the honeymoon with Mud Face?

Those are all supernova.

I keep passing up the convention every year, but I need to go next year FOR SURE! I keep kicking myself in the face for not doing so.

Justin said...

Chloe Cumming said...

I wish I could have been there... your work is beautiful at the mo. Like an orchid explosion at a wit factory.

Marcelo Vignali said...

Absolutely brutal. You're the "ground-and-pound champion" of caricature.

Nico said...

trevor said...

I keep kicking myself in the face for not doing so.

You can DO that?

I pray you never have to do time. They'll turn you into their own personal monkey puppet.

- trevor.

Dave Fontana said...

Wow, Marlo. Great coloring...everythang.
Sorry I missed the NCN Con this year... SB deadlines.

Colter said...

I saw the first picture on myspace, and until now I thought it was a hillbilly or something. Now I realize it is a girl.

These are hilarious, but then again all of your work cracks me up.

John A said...

These are really spectacular, Marlo, you just get better and better.

Moyse said...

Show us your life drawings from Stephen Silver's class. They were funny too!

I'm still amazed these are just markers!!

jert said...

I think your work is awesome! I feel so honored to have one myself (all
my Canadian companions were jealous)

It was nice to meet you!

Mike Tucker said...

Boy, caricature has really been taken to another level since the last time I looked into it.

Edo draaijer said...

Absurd but terrific style! Like it very much!

Sean Worsham said...

My favorite is the lip girl on the very top. Very detailed and I love the red hues and green complimentaries. I also loved the expression overall. You have a way of bringing out the character in everyone in a not so idealistic way, but in doing so shows the real inner beauty of your subject. Uniqueness is the most truthful beauty of them all. I want a charicature, from you it would be an honor!

Sean Worsham said...

One other thing...You seem much happier lately (I can see it in your latest drawings).

Niall O loughlin said...

T'was great meeting you again Marlo, you're a real lady! hope to see you again in the future.
Luv and xxx's Niall.

Sam "quick draw" Gorrie said...

Jeffrey W. Meyer said...

Brilliant work Marlo! That marmalade joke was hilarious by the way! I'm in Vegas now neck deep in a tattoo apprenticeship and doing caricatures on the side! Keep up the killer work! You have an imagination I can't help but admire! THanks for all the inspiration!

J.R. Spumkin said...

I KNEW YOU USED PRISMACOLOR MARKERS!

They seems pretty good for this kinda coloring.

GREAT STUFF, Marlo.
