Adam Pate - Caricature Guy

One of the great things about being in the NCN (National Caricaturists Network) is the worldwide networking of all members, about 700 caricaturists in total (could be more), there's always someone who will give you a hand if you're struggling with a job.
The other plus is we draw each other as 'warm up's' for other jobs - you can really experiment and do things that most clients don't request for the paying work !
This is Adam Pate one of the most active members, nice guy I met him at the Raleigh convention and did a pencil sketch of him which got a bit tied onto the paper size - computers don't hem you in like that !! Reworked the sketch in Photoshop.
Incidentally the NCN is renaming to ISCA - the International Society of Caricature Artists - doesn't that sound impressive !!

Looks great Tel! Hey we saw a great tv show on Perth the other day, we can't wait to get a trip out there planned and Margaret River looks like a great place (60 miles south of Perth I think?)

Tel said...

Thanks Steve - appreciate you calling in.
Margaret River is pretty special, about 200 miles South though, plenty of nice bits in between and lots of that big golden orb in a huge blue sky too !!! ( I should get a job with the tourism commission !)
