"Sketched" Comedy: Check Out These Incredible Drawings by Cleveland Artist Alex Kelly




That's one huge portrait of Amy Poehler. And it's one of many — portraits, not Amy Poehlers — produced by Cleveland artist Alex Kelly from a series he calls "Sketched" Comedy, in which he draws popular comedians.

Kelly's been getting some much-deserved national attention for his work, but we thought it was fitting to feature him during the week of our inaugural comedy issue.

Kelly's full collection can be seen at his website, alexandharvard.com. If you like Parks and Rec or The League, you'll see some of your favorite cast members represented.

It almost makes you think comedians could one day be working for the Wall Street Journal!
