More rural work ...

The farm theme has continued for a farmers 60th birthday commission - apologies to Murray Ball for borrowing the 'Dog' from my favourite cartoon strip Footrot Flats - I've got all the books but I rarely check the cartoons since it's retirement - a classic !

Rodeo 50th Birthday !

This is the central part of a collage of 10 family members for a former rodeo riders 50th birthday.
One of those jobs that became bigger than Ben Hur, like every family collage I've ever done - sigh !

Yesterday saw the launch of a new Caricature website in Perth - Perth Caricatures. It is an alliance between Perth's three best caricaturists ( .. we're biased !) to drive more business particularly for 'Live' work. Yours truly, Jeremy and Mick have worked together a lot at gigs and previously advertised, and quoted, against each other. By pooling our resources and sharing Adwords costs this looks like being a mutually harmonious arrangement.

Within an hour of launch the first job - a four hour gig - came in. We now have an arm wrestling competition to see who takes it !

The website is HERE

..another ACA compatriot

Here's another fellow ACA member - West Australia Vice President Mick Horne - sketched it out around Christmas time and finally got around to painting it.
He knew the Navy career would come back to haunt him - everyone loves a sailor !

Poms - salt of the Earth !!

One of those jobs I really enjoyed doing. It was a 'go for it' commission but I think the socks and sandals really carried off the style statement !

I will point out that I now wear Australian flag socks with my sandals.

Fellow ACA member ...

This is a caricature of fellow ACA member Peter McAdam who hails from Sydney, NSW.
He asked me to do one whilst at the Stanley's in Melbourne last year - even offered money - careful what you wish for !
Had fun with the chin(s) - I know all about those problems.
