GWL: 40 "...or else she'll rip it apart." (MARCH 2007)

This one was fun, I was working with another artist, Stacie, at the time and this guy sat down in her chair and this guy says "draw me outrageous" and Stacie goes "well, you should get drawn by him then" pointing to me. I was psyched! looking at it now, I don't think it's THAT crazy and I could have gone much crazier now, but I still like this one (thanks, Stacie!). The guy liked it and was a really cool guy to chat with. He said he was going to bring his wife to get drawn by me the next day. He did bring her the next day, but unfortunately, I was busy drawing people and guess they couldn't wait that long. This drawing also got me the next one below...

...she liked what I did with the guy above and wanted one like it. yay! I like when I get to go more crazy and then someone sees it and wants one like it.

this one had an interesting story, I was drawing her and almost done drawing her,into the coloring stage and this girl's mom walks over, leans in and whispers into my ear in a very serious tone "if you don't make the cheeks smaller she's going to rip it apart" I just stopped in my tracks, puzzled, as it's drawn with marker and not like I can just fix I just thought- oh well, I can't do anything now and continued to finish it. The girl saw her mom saying something to me and asked "what?" and her mom goes "nothing dear, everything's great" or something similar in a very cheerful completely opposite to what she whispered to me tone. so anyway, I showed the girl the drawing and she loved it! she bought a frame and was clutching the framed piece tightly. I saw her again the next day and she came back saying again how much she loved it. I was pretty happy with it overall, the cheeks are lop-sided which is a habit I have but I thought it was still a fun one.

more pics, more crazier ones very soon!

Hey C
I get moms whispering corrections in my ear too.
When I continue they tell their kid, "your know this is a cartoon."
.... and Happy B-day too.
