Caricatures: Eye don't know, Squirrel nut boy, Jackpot! Annie's wedding, April oldie (DEC.2007)

drawn during the month of December 2007 at Great wolf lodge, PA

this one and the next bunch were all from the same group. and it was good times. It's what I like to refer to as a jackpot! :) I had really limited lighting though where we were set up at the lodge, which makes for bad picture taking. booo...

his eyes were really like that. go ahead, take a closer look.

Around this time, I started going through a phase of trying to make my faces more 3-D. you'll see more of this stuff in the following months.

This was cool in that I had drawn this same girl 5 months prior (the 2nd pic) and she had come back and her parents wanted another drawing. It's rare but very cool to get to draw the same person again (well, besides co-worders, obviously, heh), hopefully the latest one being an improvement. The older one was a lot tamer, something that I am trying to avoid and still sometimes fall back into at times. It's not even a good tame one. more just a bland sketch. I like the newer one a bit better, but still see areas I'm holding back on.

the mom kept saying "you made him into a MONSTER!" heh. luckily the kid liked it.

I like my idea of having him shoving nuts in his mouth but the execution is kinda weak. weak tree too.

This was a reject...sorta. He wanted it really crazy but then I don't think this is what he expected. So he bought another one drawn by my co-worker. so it was a reject but not really cause he still kept/bought it.

My friend, Annie, got married and I did caricatures at her reception, here's a few from that event. mostly tame-ish stuff. It was a fun time though. everyone was really cool and nice. I was glad to be a tiny part of their special night which was also held on new year's eve. oh and they had yummy pastries. mmmmm.

oldie from April '07
I was looking at some old pics and realized that I had somehow missed posting a pic from April 2007 that I definitely should have posted since these were some of the coolest customers I've ever had! They were just really cool and appreciative. They even came back later and bought me a box of fudge! and the girl gave me some fuzzy dice that she won in the arcade. I still keep those fuzzy dice hanging in my apartment.

yummy! how cool are these nice folks?! A lot of times you have really bad, rude etc. etc. customers and then you get an awesome one and it really is nice and makes you feel good.
