Long Overdue update....

a little Mega update here! First blogpost in two months, and first in my new abode in Philly - got a bunch to show ya, so let's go to the faces....
These here are from a fun company party I did out at beautiful Valley Forge park at the end of August:

Here's a sampling of the awesome event I did with Pat Harrington, for Drexel University...
From a PNC bank event in early Sept:
Here's a couple folks from a retirement community in Allentown, including 1 staff member:
This fella is usually very camera shy, but loved his caricature so much he agreed to pose with it - when I showed him it he told me it was the best photo he'd ever had taken of himself! Yes, caricatures CAN build self esteem!

Did a free health fair today for a great company that has given me several other gigs, and was able to draw about 7 faces before the rain hit! Here they are:

102 Degree Caricatures...

Wooo, whatta hot one for four days, at the Burlington County Farm Fair last week, all worth the sweat and tears, I think...
My original 'booth' inside a big tent - hot, dim, and kinda miserable...
My stand after I finally escaped the sauna of the big tent, looking proud and ready for business....ha!
Ellen DeGeneres for a nice lady who designed hospital gowns for cancer patients, and was a big Ellen fan. she was going to send this drawing along with other photos she took with her Ellen doll, to the show. Quite ironic that this is the second time I've drawn Ellen in two years, as last year she had a caricaturist on the show, and mocked him on the air (facetiously?), sparking the ISCA to ask its members to contribute drawings of Ellen to send to the show to 'educate' her on the art of The 
caricature, of which I contributed. I think this one is a better likeness! 
He liked guns, she liked drugs (because she's a pharmacist).
   Yes, I just happened to have his favorite band, Napalm Death, on a Pandora station, which I played for him while I drew. Word is Grind!
I'm still cleaning hay out of my car from this festival!
Here's some photos from a big country club event I did at the end of June:

June crazy faces...

Ooooookay, and here's the rest of the crazy faces I drew at gigs for the month of june!
These are from a middle school grad in Allentown:
Next batch is from a early morning post grad gig I did with Patrick Harrington, and man things got nutty!
This kind of wilder take on caricatures usually happens at these kinds of events:

Last grad party of the month and my drawings seem to have gotten a little looser and sloppier, and hence, weirder - tiredness catching up with me i suppose!
This little guy was from a health fair I did in West Philly. Cute kid!
Then there was this here fun couple that wanted to be drawn as a zombie bride and groom at the Wizard World Comic convention I worked at at the Phila. convention center for one day...
Here's a bunch of other interesting people I met there:
And lastly, here's some nice ones from a huge country club pre-4th of July event, right before I took off for a 4 day weekend to beautiful Castine, Maine....
