Here's another one for 'The Book.'
While doing live caricatures at an outdoor festival, I overheard this snippet of a conversation between a fellow caricature artist and a festival patron:
"Ma'am, I just can't do that."
"No, please? Can you draw her... but not Asian?"
"But... she IS Asian."
"I know, but can you please draw her NOT Asian?"

I really enjoyed drawing this customer.
I had an idea what I wanted to do, and I liked it -
but afterward, I thought of other directions
I might want to take the drawing.
After a couple rough sketches,
I redrew the caricature.
Instead of exaggerating the glasses up, I pushed them down.
Instead of making the eyes tiny and close together, I moved them apart and made them conform to the overall head structure more.
Instead of making the hair squished up, I took it off the page in just about all directions.
Not only is it a better likeness, I think it's a better drawing all around.

|The season is officially started!!!|
First drawing of the *LoL* 2014 summer season.
We had a GREAT time at the Cinco de Mayo festival in Denver's Civic Center Park. I worked with Michael and Brooke on Sunday, and we were ROCKIN'.
Here are some of the highlights - the few times I actually had time to take the camera and snap a pic...
|More fun and drawings|
at the *LoL* booth.
|Nanananana.... Bat Girl!!!|
|One of the highlights of the day|
was these girls' reaction
to their drawing.
|Herb & Johnetta - happy anniversary!|
|The drawing highlight of my day |
was this caricature. I really felt
like I was 'in the zone.'
Come see us downtown, at festivals and events throughout the summer.
Keep up-to-date on where we'll be and see more pictures at our Facebook page:
