Illustration Friday: Suit


"I came out here with one suit and everybody said I looked like a bum. Twenty years later Marlon Brando came out with only a sweatshirt and the town drooled over him. That shows how much Hollywood has progressed." -Humphrey Bogart

Peace to everyone, and remember, it's not what you wear but how you wear it.

Great rendering of Marlon, aka Stanley Kowalski. I recognized him immediately! And great thinking on the "suit" word. I normally so hate suits but so love plain white tee shirts!

janie said...

great caricature. but me thinks 'twas what was in the T-shirt caused the stir, especially in street car named desire.
Give me Bogart over Brando any day, I've always thought Brando was a bit of a ham.

Nice drawing. I see a future Godfather there.
