Wedding Caricatures for Pauline and Paul!

It's so great getting a personal message from the bride afterwards- Thanks, Pauline!

Hi Mark,

Hope your well. I just want to say from Paul and myself thank you so much for doing a great job at our reception on the 12th Sep. Everyone was well impressed with their caricatures and now have a lovely reminder of the day. I can’t believe how much they actually look like everyone. Great job!

I was wondering if you would email me any photos you took on the day. I’m sure I missed loads of people getting theirs done and would love to get a look. The day goes so fast I’m now trying to piece it together with everyone’s photos!!

And heeeeeeeeere they are!!! Click on a pic for a large view!

The Fruit Growing Brothers!

This week's Illustration Challenge on The Gurney Journey BLOG was to imagine what the fruit growers might look like based on their business card. Can you guess which one is William and which one is Bruce?

Go to James Gurney's BLOG to see all the other imaginative entries and read his artistic insights. A must for painters and illustrators (and students damaged by art school)!

Gift Caricatures...All the way to Amerikay!

It's funny how some people find me!

This particular client was someone I had met at a web design class in Boston about 4 years ago! Last week I got an email from her- She needed a caricature of her husband and his buddy who are turning 50 soon. She needed them fast and I was able to create these very quickly with my cartoony style- Inked outlines, simple color, and a plain background.

I'd say she was pleased with the results because here was her response when I sent them...

OMG... these are great!!!
Hi Mark-
Thank you so much. My husband will get a kick out of his buff body! We were watching the Olympics an I commented on the gymnasts muscles...he promptly told me he'll never look like that!! I think he'll be in for a little surprise! You must work really late! They are wonderful. I'm so excited to put the invite together. I will go to the post office and mail you a check today. Please drop me an email to let me know you got it.
Thanks again,

Awww, Shucks!

Maeve & Roy's Wedding Reception Caricatures!

Ever feel like you're in a fairy tale? Where everything is magical and perfect? Where the white flowers and linens blow gently in the breeze and the silver sparkles in the sun?

Yeah, it was like that. Thanks to the work of Kate Deegan, the awesome wedding planner, who also recommended me!
