Nurse, Nurse - I've finished !!

The joy and exuberance of finally finishing the heap of commissions I had lined up in mid November has lead to another post ! ( well there is one that's still hanging about but that's the client not me ..... )
I've done a series of caricatures for a chain of medical centres (hence the nurses !), Queensland Ironman competitors and Dad and the dogs amongst quite a few others.
This is a collage of the one's I liked the best - though there's a Saturday Night Fever themed one that I really liked that is sitting all framed up to be collected - I can't seem to find the digital original - wait until you get old.
Now a fortnight off ( I love saying that my North American friends haven't a clue what that is !)
Merry Christmas.

Christmas Robot !!

This is a commission with a difference the client wanted her partner depicted as a robot - actually it was fun to do and no one can challenge the proportions and how good the hands are !
If I don't post again before the big day - I wish a brilliant Christmas to all of my three readers and their families !
Enjoy !

Tel 'live' - well there's a pulse anyway !!

Over the lead up to Christmas I've done eight 'live' caricature shows for private parties and corporate functions. Here's some samples.
I really forgot to take the camera out of the bag most of the time - peak output was 16 an hour - average about 10.
Still not sure if I enjoy doing it - though the people are great ( and so's the money !!) but I'm nowhere near as comfortable with the end product as my studio work - too much of a perfectionist I guess regardless of the little voice in my head saying 'forget the portrait' I still head that way.
It's all studio work until Christmas and then some heavy practice before 2010 'live' shows.

A bunch more ...

Still wading through the Christmas jobs. Here's a collage of bits and pieces. I'm down to three, as yet to start, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel and heading off to the golf course this morning to see if the 'ol clubs still work.
I've started a couple of celebrity caricatures which I'm looking forward to getting really stuck in to including a Tony Abbott - it'll be great not to have to 'proof' them !
