Illustrator research

Daniel Adel
 Adel's illustrations consist mostly of oil caricatures and portraits with props and backgrounds to give concept. Compositions are traditional with a lot of centered subjects in traditional 19th century portrait poses. His work is in oil, subjects consist of bright, highly contrasted, caricatured, faces of celebrities, exaggerated in size compared to the rest of their bodies. His work is painted in a realistic style with some identity given by the use of mark and color. color is overall subdued, a lot of the backgrounds are muted gradations.  J. C. Leyendecker is a clear influence
