I attended a "caricaturing from photos" workshop with Jan Opdebeeck. Here he is next to Sam Gorrie. I always learn so much from him!

Here's Sam working feverishly on caricature buttons! Everyone wanted one...and marvelled at how she could get such good likenesses on such a small scale.

This is Johanna and Johannes, new friends from the Netherlands. She does wonderful pastel caricatures and also works in sculpey. I got to meet them on my connecting flight to the con.

This is hard-working Marion van de Wiel, a fantastic live caricaturist, also from the Netherlands. We have a sizable international presence at the con every year.

The horrifically mean caricaturist, (and fellow Phillies fan) Matt Zitman. We got to watch a bit of two Phillies playoff games on his phone. They lost....:-(

My boyfriend John was only able to get to the con for one day between his own gigs (he runs a moblile Jumbotron.) but I appreciated it so much! Here he is with Marlo and Sam.
