Last November I received the call from Brad Pitt’s PA, saying how much they loved my Pulp Fiction caricature and that they would like to commission me to draw Brad Pitt’s caricature for his 50th birthday gift!
I jumped at the chance and headed south to the set of his latest movie ‘FURY’, which was being shot in the UK. I spent the most exhilarating day with Brad and his film crew, on set, watching the explosions and drama unfold before the cameras, while I snapped a few shots and drew the crew’s caricatures.
I toiled away at the composition, which included his Personal Team (hairdresser, lookalike, PA, driver, dresser) for over a week and when it was finished I had the honor of presenting it to Brad Pitt on set on his birthday in December. Unfortunately he decided to shoot a ‘closed set’ on his birthday and so I did not get to see his reaction to the artwork, but he must’ve liked it because he asked for a copy of my Fight Club caricature poster too!!
Unfortunately I signed a non-disclosure waiver, which means that I cannot impart any details, but as I retain original copyright, I assume I can now share the caricature with the public.
It was a joy to be on set with Brad Pitt and an honor to be chosen as his caricaturist. Best day of last year for sure 🙂
