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

Posted By on Thu, Nov 21, 2013 at 4:04 PM


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, 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!

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
