Daily Caricature Sketch - Kim Jong Il



After illustrating Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin yesterday, I thought it might make a nice series to illustrate various leaders around the globe. I like the look of the subject in front of their country's flag.

Today I chose to create a caricature of Kim Jong Il, North Korea's leader. Apparently, he suffered a stroke in August of 2008 and it is unclear as to his exact health as he hasn't made too many public appearances since then. When he is eventually succeeded could that mean an end to the Communist reign in North Korea? Doubt it, as it looks like his son Kim Jong Un will be the new leader. If that is the case, let's hope his son is a walking caricature like his father. It makes for easier work for someone like me.
