Character Actors: I’m Addicted to “Jim”

January 10, 2012

It is interesting to me that at the end of 2011 I was once again sketching the character actors from "The Vicar of Dibley" because I had been sketching them at around the same time as 2010 moved into 2011.

PBS ran the wedding episodes and a "making of" episode and I found myself once again enjoying all those wonderful faces and great performances.

If you haven't seen this series I recommend that you seek out some DVDs and catch up on the craziness that happens in Dibley. As Jim might say, "No, No, No, No, No, Yes that would be quite fun."

    Great characters indeed. Glad you get some of our British TV.

    Thanks for your blog….it has been an important part of my day for about six months now.It made me buy a pentel brush pen which I love – freed up my drawing no end!
    But your recent posts on cycling made me sad – I just got rid of my three beautiful cycles as I can no longer use them. Enjoy your pedalling.

    Zany, bawdy, lovable characters – and you’ve captured Jim with his sideways jawline pretty darn well!

    Michael, thanks for reading! Glad you are using the PPBP, also my fave! Sorry you can’t cycle any more! That makes me sad too. But keep sketching.

    Thank you Sheryl. I’m glad you see Jim here. I was going to say he is my favorite character, but I am also very partial to Owen! In the documentary we see the folks out of character and they are all so different.
