Drawing Broadway 2: Ken Fallin


Ken Fallin at Al Hirschfeld's desk

A current Broadway caricature artist, Ken Fallin's works have been featured on Broadway.con and currently on Playbill.com.  He has also done work for such diverse companies as HBO, The Wall Street Journal, the Walt Disney Company, Belvedere Vodka and CBS News.  His clients, who proudly display his art include Patti LuPone, Bette Midler, Madonna and Bernadette Peters.

and theatre icon Stephen Sondheim

Mr. Fallin's most recognizable works for theatregoers are probably the collages he created for Forbidden Broadway.  He says Al Hirschfeld is his inspiration.  Interestingly, some of Fallin's works very closely resemble those of his idol, as in the portrait of Cameron Mackintosh below.  And yet others reveal a similar, yet very unique, style of art.
