marriage proposal caricature

Saturday was bitterly cold, my fingers were freezing, my knees knocking together, and I had to go to the bathroom reaaaaal bad!!! so what was I doing at Central park??? Helping a guy propose to his bride, what else??? I love doing these type of caricatures the best since the reactions of the would be bride are always heartwarming. A woman who doesnt love caricature doesnt have a sense of humour, period in my opinion, and judging how his bride to be laughed, it's going to be a happy marriage. I threw in a more exaggerated freebie for the happy couple as well.

I took these pics with my trusty digital camera and got made the prints lickidy split at my neighborhood Walmart, as is my habit. When I went to pay for them, the cashier behind the counter, looked at my pics, looked at my face, and exclaimed, : Hey , I know you! You're the dude who draws on the train all the time! I've seen you!" It made my day.

Nice job on both! Doesn't it just warm your heart to be part of this couple's life-story forever???

I always tell couples I draw
NOT to break up so that my caricature can stay relevant....

Kind of interesting when you put it that way, but you're right. they will NEVER be able to speak of this event, WITHOUT mentioning your name to their friends, their families, their children, and their children's children! we're immortalized through art, and even get PAID for it!
