Arsene Wenger Caricature for Non-Profit Football Tournament

Arsene Wenger Caricature - The Wenger Rejects

Last weekend I took part in a 6-a-side football tournament (we reached the semi-final, but we lost to the eventual winners) and I was asked to draw a caricature of the Arsenal Football Club’s manager, Arsene Wenger, as a logo for our team The Wenger Rejects. (As it happens Arsene could probably have used us that day as Arsenal went down 8-2 to Man Utd.)

As I worked on it I also practised on other celebrity caricatures and was reminded again how tricky it can sometimes be to

capture the essence of a person. Arsene was relatively easy but I struggled with Manchester United’s manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, until I got one I was happy with.

I have done a few celebrity caricatures over the years including one of Sir Richard Branson in preparation for a live appearance at a party, one of Sol Campbell when he was a Spurs player, a group caricature of The Who, and most recently Roger Federer as a tennis opponent for a private client.

I also draw pencil portraits and did a series of six detectives (Poirot, Morse, Barnaby, Frost, Marple and Foyle) for a client who is, like me, a fan of TV crime fiction (the gentler kind).
