John Hurt as The Elephant Man-1980 film by Caricature80 John Hurt as The Elephant Man-1980 film by Caricature80
Graphite sketch of actor John Hurt in The Elephant Man. I remember only seeing portions of this film as a kid and being scared but very fascinated by it. I need to see it now as an adult. 11x14 inches.

Thank you!! I've got to add it to my Netflix queue. There may be other screen captures that would work nicely as stylized portraits and caricatures. It seems like one of those few truly brilliant films that have been sadly forgotten from public consciousness.

Since both John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins are actors whose work I enjoy tremendously, this film rankes rather highly in my all-time favourite list. The story of John Merrick is just heart-wrenching and in view of this poor man's disformations your drawing is more of a portrait than a caricature. Well done!

I need to see the film in its entirety. I only saw bits and pieces of it when I was a kid but now I really want to go back and revisit it. I like both actors too. Thank you so much for the compliments!
