My Kumail Nanjiani portrait went over so well that I've decided to start posting these comedian portrait exercises more regularly.

Today: Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts of Comedy Bang Bang!

Music used with the generous twitter permission of They Might Be Giants.

And, if that sold you, here's their main website:
Should I plug some more stuff?
I like to make things, and make things move. This blog is where I'll be putting sketches, tests, ideas, works-in-progress and such.
