...lies love for their State Fair---and caricatures!
Well, I've moseyed on down to Dallas, Texas to do airbrush caricatures once again. I'm with the same crew as always, Celestia, Vlad and our fearless leader, Paul--without all of whom, I would not know how to use an airbrush...
My other half, JB, is here for a few days too!
Here are my comrades at work on the first day of twenty-four:
A wonderful array of faces presented themselves to me on the first day, too!
The family above became my very first customers of the fair. They have a collection of black and white caricatures of themselves---Celestia drew them last year.
Some cool requests:
"Draw me with great big muscles."
"Draw my shades!" (His dad asked what the reflections were in his sunglasses--I said, it's me, the caricaturist!)
"Make sure you put in the 'dry heat' shirt." I put in a heated background too!;-)
On the second day, there was a college football game held in the Cotton Bowl, which is situated smack-dab in the middle of the fairgrounds. I was asked to come up to the broadcast booth to draw the ESPN2 announcers:
Saturday brought its share of fun faces to do as well:
JB kept me fortified with funnel cake topped with caramel and whipped cream... I do have a love/hate relationship with fair food ;-)
