Fellow caricaturist Ismael Roldan has passed away. I always enjoyed his work with it's intricate colored pencil cross hatching. He made no secret of his love of David Levine's drawings and I think he advanced the ball a bit by using color with a similar technique. I didn't know Ismael, but as a contemporary of his I felt I knew him through his work. Originally from Columbia, Ismael lived here in the States for the last 20 years and had what looked to be a very successful career as an illustrator. Heartfelt condolences to his wife and family.
