Uli Meyer

Art and animation folk will find heaps of great stuff over at Uli's blog.
I had requested a picture of him so he could be caricatured.
You can find the original picture at his blog if you'd like to compare.
Speaking of animation, on Donnachadas blog, I found a link to the work of a chap called Bill Peet.
Bill Peet was a story guy at Disney and illustrated many childrens books which were a huge influence on me as a child.
If you don't know his work please follow the link to discover more. Posted by Picasa

Great caricatures! I like your style.

Elliot said...

Cheers Shawn - thanks for dropping in.
Your own style aint too shabby yourself!
Lovely work!

Hey Elliot! nice little drawing- though I have to admit it looks nothing like Uli! Check out the eurovision drawing competition at
He likes to draw himself when he enters and he's pretty much right on the money.

Bill Peet was THE Disney story guy for me. Look at his boards from Jungle Book and Dalmatians and be blown away. You should definately get his self illustrated auto bio.

Hi Elliot,
Thank you so much for your drawing. Boris is right, it does not look much like me but I also know how hard it is to draw somebody without actually knowing that person. I would not be able to do a great likeness of anybody just by using a photograph. Still a good drawing though. Always a fan of your fresh style.
Cheerio, ULI

Oh what would you clowns know?
It's not as if you've known each other for 20 years or so, yes?

Joking of course, and yes Boris - Bill Peet is just wonderful and I will pick up that autobiography sometime.
