sum skechezz of late...

Wow! It's been a while. Having a lot of my time eaten up at Worlds of Fun. BID.

I attended Planet Comicon this past weekend. Shared a table with my buddy, Monte May. And had a good time reconnecting with a lot of familiar faces. A lot of them told me it's time I did my own web strip...I guess maybe it is.

To start things off, I did a sketch of "Wild Dog" Simpsonized! It was for a fan at the convention.



Let me know what you think.

Mark Stratton suggested I do a "freak of the week," in honor of my caricaturing abilities(I think). Here's a sketch I did at an interview a few weeks back. This is Nathan...


All I really saw were huge eyes, big lips, a narrow face and overhanging forehead. We hired this guy, incidently.

This one we hired, but he putzed out on us.





I drew the artists we were training as caricaturists while they drew me. Here's my second try at Nathan...



Not as good as my first attempt. Not simplified enough.

Here's my first attempt at "Retread Ryan"...



Here's Rachel.



For some reason she always looks sad, but she seemed really bubbly and excited about learning to draw "funny peoples."... This is Jordan...



This is Sam.



Again, too much detail and not enough essence... In an earlier post, I drew Will. Here's my second time...



And here's my second time at "Retread."



This attempt was much better than my first. Sadly, he chose not to continue and won't be with us this summer.

I usually will try to do the "noobies" at some point as Simpsons characters. Here's my attempt at Will...





That's all for now. I hope you found it entertaining.

Mike, you can grab that great Shadow drawing you did and post it. Or link to it. Good to see you last weekend. And yes, it was a compliment to your skills as a caricurist (or however you spell it...sndzb

You draw me so much I should strip naked and charge 10 bucks an hour.

...or something.

Sorry, Will. Plan on getting drawn a lot this summer. Yours is a face that caricatures easy! But don't feel bad. Wait 'til you meet "vampire Ben."
