The Mad Art of Caricature

Merry Christmas! I got to open a present early and this is what I got. Tom even signed it for me. This will be my go to book for caricatures and if you or anyone you know has an interest in learning how to draw caricatures I recommend this book. In it Tom shares his secrets to drawing great caricatures for live events, published illustrations, and MAD! Weighing in at over 170 pages and containing over five hundred illustrations, step-by-step techniques, tips, and in-depth theories on the art form, the book is bound to be the definitive book on learning to draw great caricatures.

Waffle House Club Sketch

A couple of sketches from the last meeting. Jonathan Kendall, (Syrup Master) and Scott Kinney (Support Specialist) were kind enough to look towards me for about 10 minutes while I got my kicks. They kick off their North American tour this summer.  Scott is the one with the teeth.

We had a halloween party 3 years ago and I remember now why we waited 3 years to do it again. It's work!
Thanks to all the friends and neighbors who brought food and donated items. A super BIG THANKS to Jen who helped us pull it all together in the end. We would not have pulled it off without her. The costumes were great and the food was delicious. Overall the zombies ruled this year with a total of about 5 at the party. My 1800's vampire costume may have been a fail since I was guessed to be a magician, Willy Wonka and Abe Lincoln. My teeth however were perfect thanks to Kelly. You may not be able to see clearly in these photos but she made me a real set that custom fit my mouth. I could actually bite and bring blood with these chompers. But I wouldn't.
