1 yr anniversary! Evil Lauren , Erin eyes, Randi evil2, Erin cheek2, 1 eye cat, Mike Crawford sketch! (AUGUST 2007)

Well this post of sketches and the next post marks my 1 year anniversary as a live caricature artist, as I started at the end of August in 2006. again, technically, it's almost 2 years from today as a caricature artist, but I still have a few thousand sketches to go through and post, so these sketches are about 10 months old. I think my sketch has grown a lot. mostly, I think I feel more comfortable with the basics of everything- the tools, doing a solid saleable sketch etc. and getting my confidence up to draw more "me" which I'm still trying to do. I want to continue to experiment and push things even more. There's a LOT of things I want to try out. Lots of crazy ideas I've always had in mind but didn't feel as comfortable with. I still have just as much excitement and enthusiasm with every sketch, if not even more so, since I started.

Lauren, from Dorney. She's very sweet, don't mind my evil destruction of her face. look away! I did another one of her next month, crazy crazy, heh...

Erin, Kaman's manager of Hershey park, PA- which is the land of delicious...or should I say, deCHRISsious chocolate. eh? eh? nothing? ok. fine then. I like this one a lot, I like the eyes. you can see Mike Crawford in the background churning out another badass sketch. We had a drawing party at six flags, NJ after a work meeting.

Randi, from Six Flags, NJ. She's also sweet, I'm evil. it's unintentional, really! I like that line from hair to her chin/mouth. trying to do more of that stuff now.

Randi, again. I didn't think I got what I had in mind the 1st time. hmm...ok, so maybe I AM evil. heh. I still like this one a lot.

colin! cool dude from six flags.

nick from six flags.

erin from sesame place.

erin again. still not quite satisfied with likeness, did another one of her recently that I like better.

cat from six flags. she just started caricatures this year, show's a lot of promise. she also has a hat. that she lives in. or not...but probably. all cats live in hats. except for the ones I eat, y'know cause I'm asian and we eat cats. and dogs and sometimes rice. ok, we eat rice all the time. I'm eating rice right now. and doing calculus. and driving badly into a laundromat. and getting shorter by the second.

Bill from Six Flags. I don't know what that piece of skin on his mouth is either, heh.He's tall, so tall that once he ate a hot pocket. what does that have to do with his height? I don't know. stop badgering me. and stop unicorning me to. I like corn. and korn. and chocolate pretzels.

and here's a caricature drawn by Mike Crawford, Dorney park manager. One of THE best sketches out there. It's a shame he doesn't take many pictures of his sketches. This customer couldn't decide on what she wanted and Mike goes "fighting Godzilla, it is then!" she didn't really argue. A bit later into the drawing, Mike goes, "ok, you don't really have to have that...but if you don't decide soon, it's going to be you fighting Godzilla." obviously, she didn't think of something else. watching Mike draw is awesome, he just goes at it, and comes up with these awesome poses and stuff without any hesitation. and yup, that's Mike in the background being silly, hee hee.

Sept 2007 sketches coming up!
