The final evening is spent enjoying each other's company at a dinner/awards ceremony, after voting for our favorites in several categories. This post is a shameless "Emily with caricaturist pals" display, but I have been so inspired by these people! They are all great friends as much as they are artists...
The best roomies ever! We laughed ourselves silly non-stop.
Myself, Kristen, Jert, (Funniest Caricatures winner) and Marlo.
Myself with Ed Steckley and Tom Richmond, both of whom had seminars that were very informative and helpful...thanks, guys!
We pose with Roger (Silver Archie winner) and Beast, two of the most obnoxious yet hilarious hecklers at the party competiton. Beast, no one tops THAT one-liner!
Myself with Court Jones ( Best BW Caricatures winner) and Debbo Burmeister..he gave THE workshop for me, how to make Photoshop do things I want it to, and not confuse the #$%^& out of me. Debbo was one of the organizers of the whole event, and tirelessly worked to make it soooo enjoyable. By the way, I won a great door prize from her--a 48 piece Prismacolor Artstix set!!
Finally, myself with Rrrrrick Wrrrrright. After this, it's back to the grindstone for us caricaturists! :-)
