Texas 2015... Volume 2

These are photos of caricatures where I snuck a photo of the artwork on my drawing table, but not the subjects....
and this one, shown at the drawing stage and the airbrushed finish, was for a lady whose nickname was Lady Bee. 
I DID get the subjects in these photos...all four faces were so much fun to do! I guess my preference is for a blue-purple really sets off skin tones nicely.

50th Birthday Caricatures

When I started out doing live caricatures, in my thirties, whenever a 50th birthday gig came along, my attitude was "Wow, so glad I'm not THAT OLD!" Gulp----I'm even older than that now!!!

This photo shows the banquet hall before it was filled with family and friends of Natalie, the birthday girl---whom I didn-t get to draw because she was so busy with her guests.
However, I did get to draw these three sisters! Their reaction was beyond priceless so I just kept clicking away!
I think these two ladies were cousins, and yes I know they've switched sides. 
This adorable little cherub's father said she's always reminded him of Chuckie!!!!
I could see that. ;-)
Thank you for having me!!!

Buon 80 compleanno con caricature!

A very special 80th birthday party...for the man of the moment, Carmine, and for this artist...because my client, Carmine's son-in-law, was an old friend from high school I hadn't seen since 1982! More on that in a bit....first, here is the youthful (80 is the new 50, donchaknow) birthday boy and his lovely wife:
I think it's safe to say that everyone enjoyed my efforts!
There's a reason I did red and green backgrounds. ;-)
 The family asked that I draw the restaurateur and his sons: fun reaction!!
Finally, here is my friend Steve (aka Homeowner Man, again, caricature by this artist ;-) whom it's been a pleasure to get to know again on FB, along with his wife and son. What a pleasure drawing for you and your family, Steve!  Thanks for utilizing my skills! And happy 80th once again to Carmine.

Happily Ever After (aka wedding reception) caricatures!

This happy couple had their wedding and reception--their "Happily Ever After" party, which I inscribed on each caricature--- in a beautiful, private meadow (to call it a backyard doesn't do it justice).
What an adorable couple, Iknowriggghhht?
This was the view from the driveway!
I arrived, set up and awaited the bride and groom and their guests:
I particularly liked the teal and green theme. Here's some of my output---the bride ended up keeping me on twice as long as I was scheduled :-) so I went from twilight to long after sundown!
Congratulations, Bryan and Cristina and thank you for having me!!

Community Day caricatures 2015

Every year, I draw at an amazing Community Day in Delaware, under the auspices of's always hot and humid (it's on a riverfront) and it's always a crowd of fun (and patient)  folks! There's a line before I even get started!
 I don't forget to bring insect repellant to this gig!
There are returning faces every year for me. :-)
Thanks for another year--I've lost count!
