Strange Looking Bloke Wednesday


Here's another sketch done in front of the telly while I was watching The Wire. Shading added in Photoshop.

It's my attempt at a character that appears from Series 3 on, named Thomas Carcetti and played by Irish actor Aiden Gillen. I thought his American accent was very convincing... certainly fooled me!

I thought the accent was OK but, inevitably, he sounded Irish-American, when he was supposed to be Italian-American. Maybe he should have played McNulty! Dominic West's accent wavered the most, but he was still great in the role. Have seen it all now, loved it!

Nice cartoon, by the way, but I worry that the SLBs are not very strange looking lately!

And I had no idea the actor playing Stringer Bell was English either til I saw him being interviewed!

While on the subject of accents, can anyone tell me what one Josh Hartnett is attempting here? It's in a league of it's own!

Yes, there's been a downturn in strangeness lately. I shall remedy this for the rest of the year!
