Caricatures- 1 eye Cindy, Courtney nose, Tony Teeth, Val creepy, Mel monster facepaint me! (MAY 2007)

this is the 1st one I've drawn of my co-worker, Cindy. It's still one of my favorites. Cindy is a new caricature artist with lots of potential, she draws robot Dolly Partons and toadstools that dj- awesomeville! oh and her secret super power is dipping her hand in a cup of soda while eating pretzels, heh.

this is Courtney, a fellow caricature artist at Dorney park. She is silly and a ball of happy energy.

This is the 1st one I drew of co-worker, Tony. Tony is a punk...but a funny punk, heh. He's also one incredibly talented music composer. That kid's going places, I tells ya! oh and he also got a reject for drawing a hockey kid in a tootoo outfit, ha ha.

another take on tony. he's yellowy.

1st one of co-worker, Val. think it looks a little too mean/creepy...but I still kinda like it.

This is the 1st one of Ella, another caricature artist who works at Dorney. eh, didn't really push it that much, I did a crazier one later on. Ella (which is short for UmbrElla, NOT Rafella) goes to an art school that is intense. they eat other art schools for breakfast then throws them up and analyzes golden (graham) rules.

fellow caricature artist at Dorney Park, Crystal.

eh. I really need to actually do a good one of me one day.

awesome facepaint by friend, Mel! of Six flags, NJ. I was drawing caricatures at the stand with this facepaint on, heh. It was freaking people out. and awesome!

June 2007 caricatures coming up soon! even crazier ones to come!

Caricatures- super smile, vibrating eyes, grills, upside down, tongue, 10 second caricatures (MAY 2007)

more caricatures I drew 11 months ago, some drawn at Great Wolf Lodge, PA, some at Dorney Park, PA. During this time, I started to mess around and simplify my art more, less of super clean coloring that takes forever.

wish I got a better picture of her. she was pretty shocked when she saw her caricature, heh. this one was fun.

this guy was pretty excited about getting a caricature drawn so I thought I'd take a little more time on it. I need to draw smaller! and looking at it now, I should have made the mouth higher.

I was relatively peachy pleased with this one.

this was a quick demo that the kid ended up buying. great face, also he had these cool and unusual eyeballs that vibrated back and forth, I tried to show that in the drawing but don't think it came across to clear.

should have made more forehead, and more chin, but overall it was a fun one to do.

I like the line of the mouth to the cheek.

these girls were fun and fun to draw. great contrasting faces.

I liked the way the lines came out on this one. needs more nose.

I was happy with how this one turned out and the layout.

lines kinda sloppy but a fun one.

this is a friend of a co-worker. as I was drawing this--starting with the nose then drawing the eyes... a dad was watching with his little kid, offering explanatory commentary to his kid on what I was doing. dad to son--- " look at this one...he's drawing a face upside down" hee hee, must have been cause all I had drawn were the eyes which were under the nose, heh.

eh. all right. lines kinda wobbly in a bad way.

needs more forehead.

I think I missed on the eyes a bit, but overall, it was a nice one.

*for the next two black and white caricatures these 2 girls came up and asked if we could do a caricature for a dollar. Half jokingly, I said I'd do a 10 second caricature for 25 cents. they agreed, heh. I like doing these kind of quick ones with lots of open lines and not lifting up. actually, these prolly took me less than 10 seconds.

here's a bunch more--ones that are ok/decent, some I like the style or are funny but missed on likenesses etc.

Caricatures- Matt Zitman!, Keelan, JP Mccarthy (NOV. 2006)

here's more sketches I did back in Nov '06

This is of my buddy and fellow caricaturist, Matt Zitman, who's caricatures rock (see his blog in my links). This is the 1st one I ever drew of him.
