Tidings of Discomfort and Joy! Part 1

The vibes were wacky, wild,  and merry at this massive company Christmas Party I did earlier last month with fellow artiste Emily Anthony. After this one, I got all the Christmas I could possibly need for the whole month....my ears are still ringing from the speakers that blasted live caroling right in my face the whole time. And I only realized halfway through the event that it WASN'T pre-recorded....guess the electricity of this event and the good spirits had me distracted - in a good way! I felt very 'on' at this gig and felt that I put a lot of action and expressiveness into each face, making some big, weird, funny distortions here and some cuter and cuddlier cartoonified simplifications there. I had fun! And it looks like everyone else did too - thanks again Emily!

You're welcome John! It's always great when the vibe is wacky, even more so when it's wacky Christmas wacky!!
I really like your spot color technique.

Yes it is Emily, and it's always wacky working with you! Thanks for liking my 'technique', for lack of a better word. I'll have to experiment more with that outside of the live caricature studio...
