Stephen T. Colbert 2 by goshnessmaggy Stephen T. Colbert 2 by goshnessmaggy
i did it! i gave it to him! (dec 10 2008 show)
he came out of his studio, we waited after the show, he came out about an hour later (not bad at all :]) me and my friend froze, we couldn't talk, some lady was with him (no not his wife lol) opened a umbrella for him, but it went out and messed up. my friend had my huge umbrella and said "here colbert!" putting the umbrella over him, he said thanks and he walked to his car which was surprisingly right next to us the whole time 0_o (we were leaning on it before a bit lol), so he opened his door, put in his suit, he was about to open the driver's seat door, when i finally spoke up and said "umm.. uhh.. can.. we get an autograph" *showed him my "i am america and so can you" book* he said sure!, i had a paper inside for my friend so he wrote his first and said "stay strong" and his signature, and for mine on the "to america" page, he said "to maggy, be brave" and his signature :] he probably said that because i couldn't talk. he was about to leave when i stopped him (not rudely though, more shyly) and said "well, i'm.. and artist, and i thought it'd be cool for a celebrity to have one of my artworks" he said ok when i handed it to him, before seeing it he seemed like he thought it would be some simple drawing or something creepy, but he looked at it, lit up and said "oh wow! this is great, thank you!!" he kept thanking me as he got into his car, before he closed the door he said "maggy.. checo?" as if to make sure he pronounced it right, i nodded and he repeated my name as if to memorize it x]!!!! he now knows my name, greatest day everr :] (i'm not a fangirl lol just a huuuge fan)

no idea how many types of pencils i used, i think, 4h 2H, HB, 3B, 6B, and 8B, and realized how useful blenders are. . enjoy! you colbert addicts! :]

edit: i realized i made the chin about a millimeter too short lol, so i fixed it

Stephen Colbert is probably my favorite person on television. He's a great guy, and from what I've heard he's a nice guy. I'm glad you got to give him this drawing. I like the style of this piece too. I like that it has this gestural quality to it, but it's still a very realistic portrait of him. Great work. I love those eyebrows too haha. You should add me on your watch list and I'll do the same. I should be making more comedian portraits soon.

Omg. that is awesome. i would love to meet him. I think its cool you drew him and gave it to him. i think they usually appreciate stuff like that. I always wondered how he'd be in real life. Congratulations on meeting him and getting his autograph. I bet he was flattered by the drawing. I like your drawing too. Nice job capturing his essence. it totally feels like him when you look at it. Good work :)

Cool! What a great story! I like the composition with the figure filling the page with those eye brows in that iconic pose of his. You have a great range of values here. It's a good piece of work! It's so cool to know he has it! :clap:
