Cow Wedding Stationery!

This is definitely the most unique request for wedding stationery I've received so far! The couple getting married met through their mutual interest in raising pedigreed cattle. So, you see, it's not all just pure madness!

Caricatures at Gail & Tony's Wedding Reception!

Awwww...It's really nice to get an email like this!
Hi Mark

Just wanted to say a big thank you for everything. You really made our wedding on New Years Eve.

Everyone was delighted with their drawings and Tony and I loved ours. You really made a great impression and everyone is still talking about you. Hopefully we will get another chance to see you in action again.

Once again thank you so much and a belated Happy New Year.

Best regards

Gail and Tony

Sneak Preview...

Hmmm...What's this then, eh?

I'll reveal the full illustration next week...

Cape Cod Invasion!

Here's a little plug for my Boston buddy Mark Penta's book "Cape Cod Invasion"! I received my copy a few days ago, and it's great. Want a copy for yourself? Order it here!

Lots of fun pictures featuring well known Cape Cod locales, plus a special suprise...I've known Mark Penta since the early nineties when we drew caricatures together at Fanueil Hall. Awwww yeah, those were the days, sweating it out in the hot New England sun, drawing tourists from all over the world...

Before I left Boston for Ireland, I made a little video of Mark painting one of the pictures. This particular illustration wasn't included in the book due to space, but it shows his working method- and the joys and frustrations of realizing a vision!
