Ive been neglecting the ol' blog of late. Ive been so busy building a new website ( coming soon) and getting my VW Caricature bus ready for next years festivals. Combine that with shifts at the Fire Station, throw in some urgent DIY and thats the reason i have been blogless.....things will change...bear with me.
Heres Pat, from a charity event last week .

A couple of sketches of the iconic actor for the recent Book-face caricature comp. I messed about too much with the bottom one trying mixed media on it and ended up over-working it i thought. I much preferred the sketchier version and ended up submitting that one. The awesome Jeff Stahl won with his great version , well done Jeff !

OK, i'll be honest, i f***ked up with this one . It was supposed to be Sharon Stone for this weeks comp over at Caricaturama 3000. Half way through i thought bollocks, looks nowt like her but it looks a bit like Mrs Clinton.
So i continued and ended up with this . Granted , not the best ive seen , but viewed through vari-focals at night through the window of a 100 mile an hour inter-city express through shit- sprayed windows its more like her than Sharon Stone.
I wonder how many other artists have started out intending to draw a particular face and ended up with a different one !

Rebecca has no front teeth and enjoyed this caricature of herself in copics.
Fran and John have all their own teeth but have evidently lost their marbles when they decided to tie the knot and have their honeymoon in an old vw touring New Zealand. Heres the commission they ordered..
