Celebrity illustration/ caricature
We were instructed to choose a movie currently in the theaters or one that will be released shortly and make a caricature or illustration depicting the main star of the film in the appropriate context. I went the traditional illustration route and chose Jamie Foxx as my star in the movie The Soloist. The Soloist is a true story based on the life of Nathaniel Ayers (Foxx), a musical prodigy that studied at Julliard, whose life fell apart after he developed schizophrenia. He subsequently becomes homeless in LA, however the movie centers around the friendship that develops between Ayers and the journalist, Steve Lopez. The movie is set to hit theaters in November and promises to be pretty good as Foxx is pretty good at doing biopic type movies like Ray, which I really enjoyed.
