Here's some of my very favorite peices done of me over the years. I GOT almost ALL of this great art at the NCN conventioin! The NCN has morphed into an international organization known as the International Society of Caricature Artists. Their website, www.caricature.org, is what got me started on the path in life that I'm on now. I was a caricaturist before. Now I'm a fanatic. It's like, a religion. I mean, I eat, breathe, think and even SLEEP caricature. (Does anyone know a good therapist?)
Actually, more precisely, I eat breathe sleep and what-have-you the psychology of caricature. With a minor in improving my art ;)
Anyway, if you AREN'T a member and are a professional caricaturist, PLEASE JOIN! It changed my life. I met hundreds of like-minded artists. My craft improved exponentially from exposure to all of the other amazing artists that attend the conventions. I got lots of free art that'll be worth beaucoup bucks one day (I hope.), AND if that WASN'T enough, I met my husband at one of the conventions. Art, career, true love. You can't beat it.
And the Convention is coming up! In LESS THAN A WEEK! SO go to www.caricature.org and sign UP, people! Oh and BTW you dont have to be a caricaturist to join, just an enthusiast :) its only 50$ a year and they'll prorate your membership. :) Happy sketching!
my old faves:
me by Adam Pate. I just love the simplicity of this
I think this was Gabe Hunts but I'm not positive. Feel free to correct me.
Justin Galloway, who I think I never actually met.
Ed Steckley. He thought I didn't like it when he gave it to me. Truth is, I was speechless. Thanks Ed!
