The Cobb Book some early influences

The copy was a bit beat up but still an awesome book.
For both a wonderful cutting sense of political humour and cynicism coupled with a strong drawing technique Ron Cobb was an early influence on a lot of my concept art. The book, myself and my brother inherited from our dad was a little bit worn but still readable. It contained a lot of the political cartoons (which were produced mostly during the 1970's) were somewhat dated, many, viewer discretion would be advised; we'd never seen such amazingly detailed cartoon work as kids.

Caricature of late entertainer Tiny Tim.

When I discovered this guy not only worked on the original Star Wars as a concept artist but came up the look for the Ithorian. He was also honoured by having one named after him.
