Pink Sharpies Are Swell...


With Sharpies, you can take nothing back. The image on the paper documents a moment in time. These drawings were done in under 5 minutes with no intention or direction. Just deep house, drum and bass

Airbrush Practice

I have been doing caricatures at Valleyfair for about a month now, and have recently been introduced to airbrushing. It's been a frustrating adventure, but am closely gaining more and more confidence. This little surfer dude was made while practicing my skillz...

T-Faces


Practice with facial structure
As a practice for getting better at caricature art, my friend of friend Tom Nguyen gave me a "homework assignment" to see the T-shapes that appear in the structure of the eyes and nose. (Actually I think this comes from a tutorial by caricature master Tom Richmond). If you look closely you will see a dim red "T" beneath each face. This exercise helps identify the slant of the eyes and the width and length of the nose. I really liked this exercise and have been drawing imaginary "T's" on my friends faces since.
buwahahahaha...
