Here’s a gift caricature I did of my neighbor that was used as a signing board. He just turned 40 and his wife Maureen threw a nice party for him. He’s originally from Ireland and has been over here in the US for about 15 years. I wanted tie in the two some how, not to mention he loves beer.
I first worked from a quick sketch I did of him this past year. Working in photoshop and knowing how to get around in it helps a great deal, you can add more options as you go. Placing the US flag in the back ground faded a little was pretty cool and that’s what I wanted. But after looking at it awhile, the flag stood out too much so I took it out and put it on his tie and I think that worked better. Plus I thinned out his neck too (which I don’t think he minded.)
Here’s some photos from a couple holiday parties this year.
Here’s a couple of shots from a biker gig I did back in November at Ripken Stadium.
Happy New Year everyone!!
Below are a couple group caricatures I did this past holiday season. Also attached are the rough layouts. The first one is from the photo I took, they added a few people afterwards. They both went pretty smooth with out too much over working or redoing.
Hope you all have a GREAT Christmas. Below is this year’s artwork I used for my Christmas card. Below that is the one from the year before 06. Enjoy!
It’s that time of year. Here are just a couple of xmas cards I’ve been working on this year. I have been doing these 2 for the past couple of years, each year with a different theme. This is the first year however that I’ve done the color digitally. It is soooo much easier to make changes, add and subtract things.
I have a few more, I’ll post soon.
Here are a couple caricatures I did a few weeks ago.These are my FIRST attempts at coloring in photoshop for a client. I’m FINALLY up and running with it. Thanks to Tom Richmond’s tutorials, thanks Tom!! My good friend, Jeff Mandell said, “Welcome to the 21st Century.
I have others in the works right now, I’ll post later.
