Caricatures--Mikey C! Gums- a-mania! JuliAHHH!, Me and more! (MARCH 2007)

some friends I drew 9 months ago--

this is the 1st caricature I drew of my friend, Mike Crawford, Kaman's manager at Dorney Park, PA. Mike is a caricature artist as well and his caricatures are friggin awesome! seriously. One of the best live sketches out there. Likeness, exaggeration, fun, cute, line quality, style, body situations out of nowhere that rule with no undersketch, speed, coloring...he's got it all...that bastard :) His sketches make me want to punch myself in the head, I'm a big fan.

anyhoo, this one was fun, it sort of has a different feel and not super crazy, but I liked it enough. I did a much crazier one a couple months ago of him overthrowing the government, heh. I'll post that whenever I catch up with the other hundreds of drawings I still have to put up, heh.

this is Stacie, she came up from Worlds of Fun, Misouri, last year to draw with me last year for a couple of weeks. she's a cool cat!

another one, crazier. less of a likeness though.

this is Stacie and her boyfriend. I was happy with this one. I like how the forehead turned out.

this is Carlos, he works at Great Wolf and is a cool mellow dude. this is one of my favorites.

This is the 1st one I did of my co-worker, Julia. She's silly and fun. Also, she loves to hug squids so she can fill markers with their ink, heh.

This is Ron and his wife. Ron rocks! I tamed it up a little on this one.

this is Jackie. she's cool too. I like the crazy mouf.

1st one I did of the cool-alicious Nikky. also gumalicious! was messing around trying super thick lines. eh.

I thought I didn't quite get what I had in mind on the 1st one so I did another one, eh. not sure this one got it either.

one I did of myself, eh. missed on likeness, but I liked the look of it.

even more coming up, prolly next week!

Some crazy cool stuff on there. I like Jackie, and stacie's bf and Carlos. And Julia and the black girl and the girl with the hairwrap and the teeth.

I think you're getting better, because I can recognize more subtle details that make each drawing almost a kind of portrait, but in your style. Great stuff, man!

aaron- thanks, dude!

josh- thanks, man! there's a bunch from this period of sketches that I was more concentrating on likenesses without going too too crazy...although there's still a bunch of that too littered about, heh.
