I have been drawing caricatures in the Chicagoland area since 1993 and am best known for my family friendly humor. I don't just draw floating heads. I put something personalized into each drawing that is extracted from my conversation with the poser so that each caricature has some personality in it, like the subject being drawn. I like to use color, can do about 8-10 caricatures per hour and can also do black & white when requested. I have a library of bodies I have drawn and can provide pre-drawn or customized bodies for occasions.
My graphic art background has taken me in many directions: from logo design and basic graphics such as business cards and brochures, to designing plush characters and drawing art for product presentations for the giftware industry. I spent 9 months at Enesco Giftware as a freelance artist and went on from there doing product drawings in Illustrator to freehand drawings, illustration and cartooning. I have a strong interest in humorous writing, have studied screenwriting and am currently involved in a confidential project targeted for the children's industry. I have versatility, have a range of experience and like to be inventive. I think of myself as an idea person.
