It's always wonderful to find a family that loves caricatures. Levi's family has multiple images of their family, and so of course they had to update the wall with the new addition. I drew for the girls' birthday 2 years ago, so I was so excited to join the family again.
High school can go by so fast. I barely remember my years at Oceanside High School. There was sports, a couple cute girls, many good times with friends. But after this evening, I wish I had an opportunity to celebrate the people who made me a success, my parents, and especially my mom. I hope that the young men of Jesuit High can look back at this evening as a highlight of their academic and social years. As the caricature artist, I wanted to capture the relationship and in many cases the similarities between mom and son.
Take me out to the ball game, give me a spot to draw and I'm in heaven. I am a huge baseball fan. Baseball cards, cracker jacks, foul balls, I love it all. So in making relationships with local corporate identities, I am excited to being working with the Single A Professional baseball club the Modesto Nuts. I will be drawing at themed nights throughout their baseball season.
My kids went to this school. Even they are now entering or are enrolled in high school, the still look forward to going back to their elementary school and seeing their former teachers, and staff members. This is one of the great community events, and so of course, I have to participate. This is my second year drawing caricatures for the Jamboree, and it was just as successful as the first!
It was rain or shine. And I guess God went with rain. The Doggy Dash at WIlliam Land park was a success for me, if just because it gave me a chance to break in my new pop up tent. The rain came down, but surprisingly, the dog and their human friends came out. I was busy the entire event, and like it happens so often, I closed out the place as one of the last vendors to close up shop.
After a day of much needed rain, it's okay to ask for a break so locals from the Sacramento area can enjoy the outdoors, numerous culinary takes on the classic grilled cheese, and caricatures. This was the first of what should be an annual event, the Sacramento Grilled Cheese Festival. And as families, couples, and friends chose to take some time from the busy schedule of sandwich lines to get a funny drawing by me.
After a successful artist series in Southern California, it sure is nice to be back home in Sacramento, California. My first event back was for to entertain gusts at the Wag Hotel Easter Egg Hunt at McKinley Park. On a beautiful day, it was wonderful to meet and sketch all the dogs and their best pals.
Spring Break 2017 has come and gone. The time away from Sacramento was a great rest. Sun, food and drinks, but most importantly, awesome drawings! LegoLand is a great place for me to practice my craft.
