awesome caricature of me

Fellow caricature artist, Alison Gelbman at www.caricatureexpress.com surprised me this morning by dropping this caricature painting of me into my mailbox! This is the first time Alison has done a painted caricature and the results are awesome! What makes it more incredible is that she is also a student of mine which means I will have to "up my game" now to keep up with HER!

He didnt LIKE being drawn... but too BAD!!

The funniest thing about subwaysurf sketching is watching, and hearing the reactions of people. Some folks laugh, others smile, other walk away totally, or bury their faces behind papers and magazines, and some get MAD and "pretend" to ignore me, but you can literally FEEL the "you're invading my privacy, and I want to punch you out vibe" take this guy, for instance, I caught him on a Queens bound R train, and i was originally drawing him from the front view. As soon as he saw me drawing him, he kept rotating his face from side to side in a lame effort to throw me off! LOL! It turned out that his side view was even more hilarious than his front view, so I kept "encouraging him" to "look away" by insensely staring at him.

draw Glenn and his Gurl...

Glenn Fergeson, a brilliant caricature artist and member of the NCN, recently posted this picture of him and his gurlfriend that he caricatured magnificently. He encouraged the other members to try their hand at caricaturing her, and well, here's where I get started.

Following are two rough drafts..

Party pics

no major exaggerations here, just having a little fun at my gig today. This gig was done through one of my agents at Havin' A party located in Canarsie Brooklyn on Ave L. I liked these best...which means that im a lousy photographer, and out of the pictures I took, these came out the best.

let's not forget George....

Such a fun face to draw... Im gonna miss him!

snnneaaaak peak character design.....

heres a sneak peek at some characters Im doing for an upcoming cartoon shordo done in conjunction with the folks at snidetv.com

This character is a comedy club manager . Wehen I developed him, I channeled Comedian, Ben Stiller, of the show, "The King of Queens"> Siller plays the character, Arthur Sponner hilariously. I also thought about Danny Devito. This character is appearing in a skit with President George Bush. More later when it launches. If you havent seen the first cartoon check it out on www.snidetv.com
