New Markettes, New Artstix =

Just a couple of warm up caricatures before my gig tonight. These are from memory of a couple of people I saw in Dublin earlier. As much a colour and line variation experiment as anything else. Plus I got a brand new box of Dixon Markettes delivered yesterday and a nice big box of prismacolor Artstix !

The Big Lebowski

Big News

Well, the decision has been made, and as of this Friday, Matt Ryder Caricature is a full time business. It has been a hard decision but I feel now is the time, and what better place than Ireland. I have been toying with the idea of full time for a long time, and have been doing it as a second career for way too long, So...... lets give it everything I have got, and come out smiling :-)

Wedding caricature

I am pleased to say I have had a busy couple of weeks caricaturing, and here is the latest wedding commission hot off the drawing table.
Today I spent a few hours at a kids summer camp, teaching the basics of caricaturing and cartooning, it was great fun, and the kids loved it !
