Oscar Coloring

Oscar Poster, personal

Well, I missed my first Oscar telecast (I’ve seen every one since 1972), and I won’t even comment on the brouhaha that has arisen over a certain ‘slap’.

If you’ve been following along, I’ve been working on an ‘Oscar Coloring Book’ personal challenge, attempting to do a page of nominee caricatures for every year of the oscars, from 1929-2029. You can see more on the project as it evolves at this link. Today I started work on laying out 1937, and also finished up a ‘colorized’ version of one of the previous pages (just to see what kind of challenge would be involved in coloring one of these things). I did a bit of tweaking to Wallace Beery, also, since I wasn’t quite happy with the likeness on this one.
