A few bits & pieces from the upcoming festive season jobs - I've closed off my website to new orders until 2012 - great range of face types. Busy but fun !!

I've got a lot of books on caricature, character design, cartooning and even animation. A lot of them get used frequently - some less so. I've just received Tom Richmond's new book ' The Mad art of Caricature'.
This is not one of those coffee table 'look what I can do' books. It is a 170 page comprehensive guide to the art of caricature that is destined to become a 'must have' for caricaturists world wide.
I can see it being close and handy in the studio for years to come. It certainly won't live in the bookcase.
If you only ever buy one caricature book - make this the one.
Congratulations and kudo's Tom.
You can order a copy HERE
..... have a view of Tom's Blog HERE - the blog, itself, is also a great reference work !

'Here we go again' - 12 months after leaving AND requesting deletions of accounts, and assuming it was done. Whoompf !!!
They just don't get it do they ?
I'm given to understand there is an amalgamation of some of the social networking sites - they've come up with very appropriate branding .....

This time last year Nola and I were on holiday in the UK and had the opportunity to visit the Tower of London for the first time since I was a kid - a long time ago. Decided to go on a guided tour led by a Beefeater - turned out to be this one - who has since become a bit of a 'YouTube' legend.
Hilarious and totally politically incorrect - the guy could work as a stand up comedian.
Well it appealed to my sense of humor anyway.
