a gaggle of Caricaturists

Group Gigz!

Don't you just love 'em... a number of artists called together
to draw for the greater good, or rather a greater crowd.
Different art supplies, diverse styles and energy

The rarity of the group gig makes them quite special,
breaking me out of Lone Wolf caricature artist mode and transforming
me into a unique element of a select crowd pleasing super team!

In every group gig scenario there is that one person
who decides to get a caricaturefrom every artist
- its a fun opportunity to see your cartoon interpretation
of a particular face next to a variety of others.

Not to mention the variety of personal styles, different
art supplies and techniques , strange and exciting new set ups
n easels n things... fresh and exciting gig chatter and anti heckler pitter patter
.. definitely an eye opener to see how others approach things,
gives you some perspective on your own old n dusty routines...

As this holiday season fast approaches with alot
more of the larger corporate events, I look forward to slingin ink next to
all my peers; those Ive enjoyed working with in the past and those I have yet to meet

The ME Galleria...
or GallerMea I suppose


Way back, way way back...
im talking 2006/07, dinosaur daze..
The ISCA was the National Caricature Network,
and I crossed the border to visit my brethren in
Vegas and in Orlando
not to mention trips to draw
at some theme parks in Virginia and Cali.
The are the inktastik treasures pillaged from foreign pens
on those adventures... as well as some digital internet
snipes at my visage

Enjoy!Tel no lies!

yet another from Ben!

missed it, i really did this year...


Well, its come and gone, the annual ISCA convention 2009, and I really felt its absence this year..I missed last years as well, but I was still reeling from 2 in a row, Vegas and Orlando. Now im 2 away and feel like the oddball hermit cousin, far and away from the family reunion.
It was perfect timing.. the end of the park season... wham, right there the day after I cashed out the stands for the last time in 2009.
Unfortunately it just wasnt in the cards this year... alot of the team went this year and I'm really looking forward to hearing about it from them all, living it vicariously through their snapshots, their artwork, their hoards of collected caricature treasures.

After writing this, I just had to paw through some of my own memories from past cons..

one of my favorites of the con, thanks Greg


I still need a 2 handed mikey for me collection!
