Whew! The Fair has ended...

and I drew alot of people!

....including the children of a friend I hadn't seen since high school graduation! He and his family live in Texas and we reconnected via Facebook. It was great seeing them at the fair! :-)
So, without further ado, here are some of the faces I produced during the final frenetic days:

I just HAD to draw his t-shirt in addition to his face!
Below: Lots of cozy couples:

He wasn't at all shy about his missing choppers!

Her lipstick took two coats of red!

I think I am improving at drawing bosoms... ;-)

Height differences are always funny, and so are goofy expressions!
Lots of cute little kids:

(Yeah, hadda draw her t-shirt, too)

Below left: She wanted a profile! Below right: Bring out the Gimp! (he really looks like Ving Rhames, huh?

Some families:

Loved doing the expression on this guy:

I tried the "baby kicking" scenario that I'd seen Paul use, and they loved it, but I wish I'd made her shirt pink instead of the actual black she was wearing. Hindsight...( it's one of the reasons I take photos of my work)

Here's a photo of the line as I returned from my last bathroom break of the fair. Thank you, fair patrons! Celestia and I can't wait to get to work on the 2010 edition of our Girl Caricaturists in Texas comic. :-)
