every morning before I start work, I do what I call my morning pages. At least three. On these pages I draw anything, hands, people, animals. whatever comes to mind. I have lots of photo books which often help me get started. This is an excersise I do to help me through my artistic blocks.

Saw some supermans floating around on some great blogs, so I thought I would give him a whirl. please don't be harsh, it is the first super hero I think I have ever drawn. Christopher reeve was my favorite as a child. for some reason When I am too attached to things it is harder for me to draw, it explains why I have never done a caricature of my favorite band. "The Beatles"

every year I attend a caricature convention called the national caricaturist network, any one can join. we hold a 4 day convention in different parts of the country and have a blast. there are about 300 caricaturists from all over the world. we set up our easels in a convention room in a hotel and draw, draw draw, we also have competitions and end it with a banquet. the grand prize is called the golden nosey trophy, I won it a few years back and it was quite an honor. Each year we have a guest speaker. Mort drucker, jack davis, al hirschfeld, sebastian kruger, john kascht, Jan Op De Beeck,sergio argones, roberto pirada, just to name a few. along with different seminars. if you would like to join, go to http://www.caricature.org/ .These are some caricatures I did last year of other caricaturists.
