Friends I have worked with:
Over the next few months you can see me work live and perhaps have your caricature done. Watch for yourself how much fun it is at any event. My next live venue is:
Mad caricaturist in Berkshire

Well it’s been incredibly busy both with Live work and studio caricatures, so much so that I have neglected Twitter, Facebook and the blog. So, having just sketched the outline of my next job I am taking 5 mins to at least throw something at the blog pages!
This is a quick ‘live’ style caricature I did of a family from photos. I draw the image first with a Tombo brush pen – Black, I try to vary the line width which is really easy using the brush nib. Once my outline is done I then grab a set of Prismacolor Art Stix – which I can only find in the USA. These are great for laying colour down quickly and you can vary from fine detail using the end or laying on their side and covering huge areas like the background. As this was to be emailed, I scanned the image in and put a solid background in via Photoshop. The original always looks better as the blending of the Prismacolor doesn’t show as well once scanned, but these are the cheapest and quickest versions and fine for a birthday card or in this case Christmas cards.
