If you're not familiar with Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant, you should be! They're responsible for the "original" show "The Office". Ricky and Steve also started another show called "Extras" which is also a MUST SEE . . . hilarious and very well written!
To the drawing . . . this is a pencil sketch in one of my smaller sketch books. One of my Christmas gifts this year was the box set of both season one and two as well as the two hour finale of "Extras". I've been wanting to do a drawing or painting of both these guys for a while now . . . for now I'm settled with a little sketch, but eventually I'd like to do something more with them. They both have such great features, it's hard to resist getting a sketch book out while watching them. Because I sketched both of them on this single small sheet, I wasn't able to show Steve Merchant's long and gangely body . . . if I were to do a painting of the two of them, I'd have Steve Merchant at least half a body taller in height above Ricky Gervais.
