Good Grief! "Peanut Catures!"

One of the things I love about caricature is that there are SO many ways you can approach a subject, so there are endless possiblilites to have fun. These two caricatures are of two NCN (National Caricaturists Network) members, Jan Baptist, and Paul Moyse. I was in a "peanuts " mood and wanted to see if I could depict them both as Peanuts characters. Jan's mass of white hair made him a shoe in for Schroder. instead of a toy piano, I have him drawing on a small toy french easel. Paul Moyse's gald head and baffled expression makes him an instant Charlie Brown. I even put the letter "M" on the trademark zig zag on the shirt.
