Drawing of a film
posted:
This is an image from several weeks ago for The New Yorker.  It went with a review of the film "Reign Over Me" with Don Cheadle and Adam Sandler. 
Drawing films can be difficult, there is always a lot of information to condense into one image.  This one was complicated because Adam Sandler has different, bigger hair in the movie.  It's hard to get a likeness when something like that happens. 
Someone at Sony Pictures bought the original for Sandler and gave it to him at a post premiere party.  I've had drawings purchased by a few people in film in the past.  My favorite one has been Uma Thurman.  I made a copy of that check, it was somewhat surreal to see her signature and my name on the same piece of paper.

Yes, it's official, Uma Thurman had me in her thoughts for at least 15 seconds.
