Wedding dirt bikers .....

You've got to love wedding commissions lovely steady work and always a bit of a challenge.
Couple from NSW who wanted themselves posed on the groom's Yamaha.
I've just kicked off a couple of celebrity caricatures, I don't know how all the other guys have time to do those, I'm not going to sacrifice golf time for 'freebies' !!

The recession's coming ........

The signs of recession are around but I'm still of the opinion that it's a bit media driven - bad news makes great reading/viewing ! Late April looks a bit slow but at the moment the desktop is full of part finished commissions.
Above are a few recent completed jobs, weddings, birthdays and send off's.
Good steady work - get your April orders in now !!!

I've got a series of weddings in the 'mill' these are some of the completed faces. As someone on a forum said to me ' they're not very exaggerated' - true. When it comes to 90% of the jobs the clients don't want big stretchy jobs, particularly for weddings.
One of the four above I got the 'go for it' instruction - you'll pick the one !!

Wedding Bells ....

One of the most significant days of your life is when your eldest gets married. On Friday our son Michael married his long, long time partner Donna. She's gorgeous, with a personality to match, Nola and I are so proud to have her as our Daughter in Law. He's not a bad lad either. They make a stunning couple.
A fabulous day was had by all the family and friends, over 100, at the marriage at Cottesloe Civic Centre and the reception in the Indiana Tea Rooms, which are a classic location above the Cottesloe Surf Club right on the beach.
We partied long into the warm night overlooking the Indian Ocean.
A magic day - I've got the headache to prove it.
Back to caricatures today ............. sigh !
