A rainy winter evening in San Francisco is still an amazing site to see. The city skyline is a great backdrop to a celebration. Drawing caricatures gives me the opportunity to see so many locations, but San Francisco is one of the best.
Caricature art has become my life force here in Sacramento. So isn't it a blessing to share that with organizations who are the lifeblood of our community, like the Sacramento SPCA? Dogs, especially rescued dogs, are very dear to my family, and in the last year I have made an effort to reach out, and give to the people who love and support the relationship formed between a person and their pet.
Day 1: Run DMC
Day 1 of my February HipHop Caricature Resolution. This month I want to celebrate, through cartoon, Black History Month by honoring the rap musicians who created, and continue to develop, the artform.
Some kids will grow up and just see another birthday pass. I'd like to think that someday Christina will have a chance to look back at these pictures and even the caricatures themselves. Maybe she'll see the smiles, and the faces of people who are part of her life. Great grandmothers, grandmothers, grandfathers, uncles, aunts, cousins, people who have in part made our life wonderful.
This year I have been looking to try a few new things in my caricature work. I love doing live caricatures, but in the past I haven't done a lot of studio work. So with the inspiration of other caricature artists and the organizers of a #caricatureresolution2017, a month long challenge to create an image of pre-determined celebrities, I am proud to say I've committed to growing in this art form, January and beyond.
