Caricatures in the Park

I was recently asked if I'd be interested in doing some caricatures of kids for a local arts & crafts day in the park that our city sponsors. My first reaction was no since I hadn't done it in a long time but when they mentioned I'd be getting paid I became very interested all of a sudden. I took a job at Worlds of Fun in KC many years ago to learn the tricks and I have to give credit to Javier Gonzales and Linn Hernandez for trying to teach me . I have much respect for those guys and gals who do this full time. It's a tough job but what fun when you actually get the caricature right, which for me is not as often as I'd like. These are a few that turned out well and all the kids were so cute and fun! (I promise...I'll get better.)
