Happy Birthday Christopher Walken!

Today is the birthday of one of my favorite actors, and probably my favorite caricature subject. I try to capture how he can look both scary and funny at the same time. Walken became well-known, early in his career for playing bad guys or mentally unhinged types. But he has done a lot more light-hearted and comedic roles in recent years. Some of my favorite Saturday Night Live moments are from his sketches: The Continental, Colonel Angus, and Shinshi-Shinshi to name a few.

Thank you, Mr. Walken, for the years of entertainment! Also, I painted this for an upcoming art show. More on that in a couple weeks...
