GROUP CARICATURE FOR 91st BDay
This is the 2nd time I was hired through About Faces (link on left) to do an on-site Group piece for Bill G.
When doing groups I prefer to see how the people relate to eachother in size/ shape dynamics.
I think it adds a lot to it and makes it a funnier cartoon.
It's always a fun challenge to do these in the 2 hr time slot while the people come in to get drawn one by one and there is ALWAYS someone who doesn't come in til the last minute and then you have to squeeze them in somehow...Last year there were 3 really big guys and the last guy comes in-he was twice the size of the others!
This time it was the skinny guy on the far right, he was @ 1 hr 57 minutes late-so I drew his watch broken. They kept me another hr to finish it up and gave me lunch with a Heineken to boot! It's all good!
There was a golf tournament going on, so everyone was eager to hit the greens-so I didn't get any pix of the victims.
The middle guy w/ glasses is 91 yrs old and you can't tell from this caricature, but he looks GREAT for his age.
Bill's the big guy top left.
Bill and his crew have great sense of humor and love to laugh so I pull no punches...This was alot of fun at 10 am!
