YES I CAN DRAW REALISTICALLY! A charcoal head study I did from Jean-Baptiste Greuze's drawing. Having an understanding of anatomy helps me draw caricatures and "traditional portraits".

From the client:
My nephew's wife has requested a caricature of the two of them as a Christmas present. She has asked me if I could do it, but it is a bit out of my league. One of my talents as an art director is choosing the right person for the job - and I haven't found anyone else that fits the bill better than you. You have a very expressive and dynamic style that I know is perfect for this project. Having now seen your stuff on your website, I can think of no one else I would prefer to use.
