The Business of Caricatures

I first learned to draw caricatures six years ago while living in Las Vegas. I worked for a very prestigious company there, Art Enterprises Inc. I had the opportunity to work in the Mandalay Bay Resort Casinos which included, Circus Circus, Monte Carlo, Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay of course. I worked with them full time for two years before finally needing to move back to the beautiful northwest. I have drawn caricatures off and on since then but only recently have picked them up again with a gusto I haven't known since the beginning!

This month Tony and I got our business incorporated, Synchronicity Arts, Inc. It's pretty exciting and opens doors for us for so many things in our future. We are in the process of applying to local festivals and events to get our name out there as awesome local artists!

These three caricatures I did from photos I got on the Faerie Worlds site of patrons who were there last year. I had fun drawing the variety of costumes and look forward to the chance to draw at the festival this year.

The following caricatures are a selection of bodies from my everyday list that you can choose to have whether or not you are dressed like this.
