Caricatures at Lesley and Padraig's Wedding!

Sometimes the crowd is a little wild and crazy and ready for an amazing caricature time, like at this wedding at the wonderful Radisson, Limerick! It makes my job a treat. Check out Maca and his 2 lovely lady friends. Apparently, they had just met him at dinner and were enjoying each other's company very much!

The Carder Method of Painting...

Just stumbled upon this today:
http://www.thecardermethod.com/


It's a common sense method that takes all the guesswork out of painting realistically. Basically, a shorthand version of the stuff you (should) learn in art school. Always good to get a refresher.

Wedding Caricatures for Jenny & Eoin!

A few caricatures from a wedding in the stunning Cromleach Lodge in Sligo. The flower girl made the dj play "Poker Face" about 10 times. Kids love Lady Gaga. Must be her wholesome family image...!

Gift Caricature with Limerick Pride!


This gift caricature was a surprise for yer man's 60th birthday. His occupation- Making wax molds of sets of teeth! It's not everyday you get such great material to work with. That's the Limerick flag hanging in the background. Up Limerick!

His wife and daughter came to pick it up and were absolutely delighted. I believe the word "Brilliant!" was the word used...Ah, yes, more happy customers...

A Special Gift Caricature...



Well, I'm back from a great vacation in the UK...First, Brighton (Mega Party Town), then London where we saw the J.M.Waterhouse Exhibition at the Royal Academy. Everyone has seen his paintings in reproduction, and it was very interesting to see them up close in person. Hmmm, maybe I'll try my own hand at some "Maidens with that Faraway Look" painting...

Here's a big 10 person caricature I completed recently- It's a gift from the Best Man. That's him in the front doing the Haka with another buddy. Want to commission a caricature for a gift? Contact me!
