Recent Gigs: BGSU and Bridal Show

Here are some photos from recent gigs I've done.

This first group is from the "Big Playground" event at Bowling Green St University. It's like an afterprom of sorts with games and activities to give students an alternative to drinking. I enjoy working at college events because I am always very popular and the kids are always so full of energy which motivates me to draw well.

On Friday 3/12 I drew at a bridal show at the North Pointe Conference Center to promote my services to do caricatures for wedding receptions and wedding gifts. The event was really well done and I met many great couples. Hopefully they will call me to entertain at their upcoming weddings or to caricatures for save-the-date cards, reception displays or for bridal party gifts. I had many positive comments and lots of questions were asked, so I think they will!

In warming up for the chalk portrait below, I did this sketch of Ellen DeGeneres for fun. She has some fun features to work with. I've only done portraits in this medium, so it was fun to do a caricature using conte chalk.

Their Three Sons

I recently completed a chalk portrait for a long time client who has had me draw a portrait for each of their three sons. What a great tradition! I hope they keep having kids!

Below are the three portraits, the most recent is first. The other two are from photos supplied by the client, so they are a little dark, but the color was the same as you see in the first.
