Robin Williams is no stranger to animated versions of himself, thanks to his iconic vocal work in Disney's Aladdin. As the Oscar winner makes his Broadway debut in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, Broadway.com's resident artist Justin 'Squigs' Robertson is offering up another animated incarnation of Williams. Squigs headed over to the Richard Rodgers Theatre to sketch Williams and his co-stars in Rajiv Joseph's new play, which follows a group of soldiers and citizens in war-torn Iraq. Take a look at the finished portrait, then head over to Bengal Tiger to catch this riveting new drama for yourself!

About the Artist: With a desire to celebrate the magic of live theater and those who create it, and with a deep reverence for such touchstones as the work of Al Hirschfeld and the wall at Sardi's, Squigs is happy and grateful to be among those carrying on the traditions where theater and caricature meet. He was born and raised in Oregon, lived in Los Angeles for quite a long time and now calls New York City his home.
