Somebody famous...to us


While working here @Disney Feature I kept seeing this guy stroll by my desk...after a few times I just had to do a quick sketch of this character...he was a great subject. After I had done this sketch someone saw it and said "Hey, that's a great drawing of Eric Goldberg." What...thats Eric Goldberg...yes...one of the greatest animators living today...wow...just never knew what he looked like....now I do....

Goldie said...

That looks nothing like me. It could be any overweight guy with a mustache and glasses. It's still a good caricature though. Congrats!

Mr poulpe said...

Bobby Chiu said...

Oh my gosh... hehe nice sketch

Goldie said...

Those flies are the spitting image of the ones I usually see swarming around butts, very accurate. Good job!

cdeboda said...

I also have to agree...great drawing!

Michael H said...

That's...amazing...and wonderful.

Catherine Satrun said...

Wow! That is a great sketch of him- great story too!! ^.^

Eric Goldberg said...

Whoever is claiming to be me (Goldie) ain't, so stop. For the record, it's a cute drawing, but the flies are a cheap shot, not based (I hope) on observation.
And if you doubt it's me, David, come knock on my door and I'll tell you the same.
Eric Goldberg

Goldbert said...

There is only one Goldbert and its me... I'm the deal! For the record that is not a drawing, it is an actual photo of me, although I think he added the flies in photoshop.

Tony Cabrera said...

just found your blog, love the fingers, awesome sketch.

David Nethery said...

I dunno ... it's a pretty nice little drawing I guess , but I don't see it as Eric . If I had seen this drawing without being told it was supposed to be Eric Goldberg I wouldn't have made the connection .
(of course , I can't draw caricatures worth beans, so what do I know ... )
