Here are some photos from an engineer’s convention I did this past week in DC. It was a good group of people. I worked with a fellow artist, Peter Scott, we had fun and we were busy, non stop.
I know, I know, you all been wondering where I’ve been?? Sorry, just a busy guy this time of year. Just not too much time to post.
But here another gift caricature I did recently for friends of ours son, Andrew Sellers who just graduated from high school. He’s a heck of an athlete ( MVP football and lacrosse, all MIAA team, all star team, a stack of scholarship offers, etc…) on top of that, he’s a great kid!!
I’ll try to post more often.
Here’s a caricature I did of a good friend of mine who I went to grade school and high school with for his 50th surprise birthay party. (He’s a lot older than me, I’m not sure how that happen??) But anyway, he works multiple jobs and wears alot of hats. So that’s what I did in the drawing.
Hi all. I’ve been quite busy lately. Getting into spring and baseball season, which gets pretty crazy at times. Attached are some photos of my stand at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore. It’s a great place to work and I have a good location at the park, which is crucial. I’ve been there since the park open in 1992. But it’s a GREAT place to watch a ball game. This time of year in April can be slow at times…
Sorry for the long drought. I know a lot of you look forward to reading my blog on a regular and daily bases and I was getting quite of few calls and e-mails inquiring what happen, when will you start posting again…. NOT. Sounded good thou.
Anyway, been quite busy. Below is my first digital painting. I did it last month for my other daughter’s birthday present, she like this young guitar player. I was pretty happy with it. Inspired by all the great stuff a lot of my colleagues are doing. But I have a long way to go. I’ll be posting more often. Again sorry to all of you who have been waiting so long.
Here’s one of my caricatures I did “live” last night at a local Restaurant (Luna Del Sea), that I’ve been doing some work for lately. This one is of our former governor here in Maryland, Robert Ehrlich. It was a pleasure to meet him and to draw him!! I don’t get too many opportunities to draw “famous” people live. Off of photos, yes. I’ve been to quite a few events where there have been VIPs, some local politicians and famous sports personalities. But they WILL not stand in line to get a drawing done let alone sit for 5 minutes. They’re too busy and if they do sit, the crowd would be all over them which is good for business, but I don’t get an opportunity to talk with them; it gets too chaotic.
But drawing Governor Ehrlich was very cool. He came to the restaurant early before the crowd showed up. So I was able to chat with him while drawing. It was funny because the restaurant called me that day and asked me to come in earlier to draw the governor. I said, ok. Then I started looking up photos of him, trying to get a feel for his face before I drew it that night. Looking up his bio, checking out some local stories in the paper to talk to him about. Thinking up some Irish stories… While waiting for him to show up, I find out that Governor Martin O”Malley is not the one I am going to draw, it’s the former Governor, Bob Ehrlich. So I had to rethink what I was going to draw and say. The drawing is now hanging right above the table he always sits at when he comes there a couple times a week.
The next time I’m in the restaurant I will get a couple of photos of all the caricatures on the wall and I’ll post them.
Here’s a “greeting card” I did for an current client of mine that works at a mortgage company. She wanted some personalized cards made to give out to her clients. I ended up doing quite a few drafts, then tweaking the final a few times. The balloons started out much smaller. This is a birthday one and below that is the “thank you” card. There maybe others to follow.
