Great story how Jason Chatfield did a caricature of Larry David for Katie Curic

Ginger Meggs cartoonist, stand-up comedian and caricaturist Jason Chatfield relates how he ended up creating a caricature of Larry David.

I can?t quite explain why, but being insulted by Larry is a great honour.

The job came through a fellow New York illustrator and great friend, Ed Steckley. He passed the job on through an agency, knowing full well my eyes would pop out of my head when I read the brief. It was a very generous prank. Essentially, the brief was as follows:

?Larry David?s Broadway show is a hit. Katie Couric wants you to draw a caricature of Larry David for the wall at Sardi?s so she can present it to him at the restaurant, live on her show.

 

We need it hand-delivered in 2 days.?

 

There isn?t enough Valium in the world to take that in without forgetting how to breathe.
