New Caricature Commission

Super Dan, pen and ink on Bristol board, approx 8x12"

I received a phone call from a dear friend of the family and a great advocate for the arts, Cathy Wright, asking me if I would be interested in doing a caricature for a member of the Alabama Board of Education. Dan was often referred to "Super Dan" because of his amazing ability to get results when it came to his work at the Board. I dug up some Superman images to get started (note to reader: don't Google "Superman undressing"!) and superimposed Dan's face over the super body. It came out as good as expected and the reception was a hit.

What fun! This is great!

I really like the tiny canvas idea too--artists will make art out of anything!

You are very talented. Why do I know this? You choose to sketch one of the most challenging subject matters, the human face.

oh, and thanks for stopping by my blog... if you read my background you know that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to faces.
