Holiday Gig for Lakeland

The event last night at Eaglebrooke Country Club for Lakeland Toyota was really great! It was an 1.5 hour ride from 7-11pm, but it was worth it. Me and Suzy Walker worked together, and we both think we have done this same client before with the same agent at About Faces a couple of years ago? Have a great Monday everyone! P.s. I really think I need to work on less squinty eyes, and practice doing the smaller bodies big head type drawings!

Favorite single and one of the only :)

He thinks he looks like LL Cool J Graet people!

She wanted his only tooth showing 


I could tell I needed more small body and big head practice, while drawing this one!
Favorite and most funniest!


Me and Suzy Walker!

Holiday Over Load

Opps... I think I took on too much before the Christmas day, after meeting with my client about his concept for his descriptive video, I am doing a story board. The client then after wards went for my high bid on having him and 5 of his family painted in high detail Caricature style.
(Shared the style he wants below) I still have to do my Childrens book cover of "Arnie the Pig". The Coloring in of a cartoon for a clown, and the painting for my friend Julio the hawaiin will have to be put off to the side, until after the holidays! Please pray for me to be remained calm, but swift!
