The Digital Portraits giving Spitting Image Toons a Run for their Money

by Danni Levy

British satirical puppet show, Spitting Image is back and bringing the world’s top players to life through innovative creations guaranteed to captivate a television audience. the show’s caricaturist Roger Law’s work exudes passion, flair and originality whilst portraying the somewhat gruesome features of each subject’s personalities.

Albert Rafaelevich, a digital cartoonist from Uzbekistan does the opposite. Taking strong, overpowering char- acters, he creates images to reflect their power whilst striking a counterbalance by using calm, pastel colors and opting for warm, friendly facial expressions.

“I am always faced with a difficult choice when it comes to the style and color of each drawing.” says Albert.

“Today, I like calm pastel colors. The drawing style is very technical and the goal is to create long-term admiration for my works. Sometimes I alter a drawing many times before I’m fully satisfied with it. I study nature and philosophy and this influences my work.”
