Character-Filled Portraits of Famous Comedians


Sketched Comedy is a series of portraits of famous comedians by Cleveland artist and gallery owner Alex Kelly (which we first spotted on AV Club). He started the project in 2013, illustrating the mugs of comedians, actors, writers, podcasters, and others on a daily basis. Kelly pays homage to everyone from Sasheer Zamata and Michael Che of Saturday Night Live , to vets like Bobcat Goldthwait and George Carlin. His style is full of texture and fantastic linework, and he really captures the character of each comedian. Kelly updates his Instagram regularly and also has work for sale if you’ve been looking for a portrait of your favorite funny person. See more in our gallery.
