Sorry haven't posted anything new lately but it's been a bit hectic on many fronts. Anyway, wanted to show you this drawing I did a couple of years ago; a client called up asking for a reprint. I really enjoy drawing faces from different angles. I wish more people in general would have pictures taken from all sorts of views so that our work gets a bit more exciting than it already is.

Mr. Terry Belinger contacted me to have his caricature done. I was missing doing these in graphite on paper so the assignment came at a good moment. Thank you for a moment of fun and for allowing me to publish your picture in my blog so that I can share this with others that follow my work.

This is something I used to do years ago and did for quite a while. Pretty good exercise not just for drawing faces, but bodies, movement, clothes, hands, etc. It's great for observation. Using b/w newspaper pictures was a delight and after a couple of drawings the hand would move with a nice flow and easiness. I recommend it strongly.

This is something I've wanted to share for quite a while but didnt' have the outlet for it; Hah! Now I do...
This is the process I prefer to follow when doing a caricature (not a humorous portrait). Sometimes deadlines don't allow you to spend much time "playing" and many people don't quite get that the whole thing is about exaggeration.
Anyway, here it is for you to see.

Aaaahhhh! Nothing like classical composers, pop musicians, writers... They usually have the best faces and are just there for us to put them on paper; no matter what the angle is! Then you combine that with a simple graphite drawing and the results are like this.

It is a pleasure to finally have a blog so that you, my good faithful followers have a closer channel of communication with me and my work.
I will be showing some things well known to you all and others that you are not-so-familiar with, like the guy to the left. This was used for stickers in a series of 15 different breeds I did. I love animals and enjoy doing caricatures of them. Putting them in human situations is certainly something I enjoy doing.
So, welcome to my blog and hope you enjoy this little bridge between you and I.
