18" by 24" Robert De Niro Caricature from the comedy 'Little Fockers', This original image has no balloon line so that De Niro's costar Paul Herman playing the caricature artist , could draw in the line during takes. Paul became friends with De Niro while working on Sopranos, and Goodfellas. Xeroxed versions were used for the multiple improv takes with Ben Stiller while filming the movie. The director Paul Weitz ( great guy btw) purposely left my name on the image. Thank You Paul and Carol Grant !! The ink used was a fade proof/water proof india ink from the Faber-Castell Pitt artist brush pen and subtle graphite shading. De- Niro was a true gentleman and a focused professional, I can clearly see why he is where he is.
