This painting was done for a class assignment, which was: Create an illustration denoting a pivotal event in television history. I chose Johnny Carson's retirement from The Tonight Show and Jay Leno's ascension as host. I like doing caricatures - I spent a couple of summers at an amusement park drawing them for customers - and that experience stood me in good stead for this assignment. The piece was rendered in oil on canvas. (And yeah, I got a "A" ).
