This one was of young Sammy for his 2nd birthday – farmer style! The back story is that a co-worker rescued a flash drive for me and I paid him back by drawing this caricature of his son. Pencil Sketch – gotta love that Pentel Twist Erase III! Sharpie Marker Rendition Add the color via […]
This is a portrait of my lovely wife. I did this back in 2007 and gave it to her for Christmas. I included the source picture in the lower right-hand corner for reference. Did I mention I love drawing portraits?? 😉
This caricature of Curtis (C-Dub) was done for both T-shirts and a framed version for him and his mother. Curtis, as you can probably guess, is a tree trimmer. Recently, while working on an evergreen, he got tangled in power lines and suffered fourth degree burns and at this time is in a drug-induced coma. His […]
Another fun caricature gig, this one for an ag club. Yeah, ’round these parts, that’s what some young people do as fun, they join an agricultural club! UPDATE: I’ve finished all eight caricatures plus the group photo! Here are some before and after shots of the inked and then colored caricatures. Feel free to comment […]
I’m so lucky to have caricature gigs like this one! Here you can see the progression from rough draft to final product. The customer asked me to draw Steve in his Packard driving away from his workplace. This was draft #1. After some input from the customer, I made some more changes. We made it […]

Ok, ok, I know…. it’s been done one million times (and I’m NOT a fan of this guy, btw). But he is fun to draw and beyond that, it was a paying customer! So here’s my President Barack Obama caricature. I’m praying for you, Mr. President….
This one was very fun! I mean, how often do you get to design a 5th birthday invitation?? And one in the UK at that! Double bonus. Loved doing the party stuff – confetti, balloons, etc…
Here’s another one I did for Stan the Man. I think this one may end up being used for his logo, but I’m not 100% sure. This one was a fun one for me!
Here’s a couple new caricatures from over the weekend. This one is Stan the Man – he gave me the one thing that all artists love, full creative control. Now I didn’t have much time, but nonetheless I gave it a good shot. The one thing that I like about this caricature is the way […]
