I was very fond of Karen Carpenter since I was a young boy. I thought of her as one of the greatest singers and she had a unique, natural beauty. She would have been a great artists model. Her big brown eyes and wide toothy smile always took my breath away. The 30th anniversary of her death is a couple of days away. I was in my early 20s at the time. I'm a tough minded guy, but the thought of her dying like this upset me greatly. Even 30 years later I still get the most awful feeling come over me. Living in a world where the reigning pop divas are Madonna and Lady GaGa makes me feel even worse. This was done with pastel on paper about a year after Karen's death. Her smile isn't quite right. Pastels are tough to use. I did a small number of pastel drawings in the 1980s and put them away and haven't gone to them since.

And here are our beloved Presidents. They've been favorite targets of most caricature artists.

This is quite a departure from caricature drawings. But I thought that someone out there would enjoy these. I've taken a bit of joy in knowing that people who usually despise abstract art like my abstract paintings.

Here are a bunch of caricatures of familiar faces that we've seen in movies and on TV all of our lives. Some of these were drawn 30 years ago.
