Ellen Degeneres

Apparently, Ellen Degeneres is not a big fan of caricatures so members of the ISCA have submitted there take on Ellen that will hopefully be submitted to the show. Here is my effort.

Premier Group event

I had great fun caricaturing at the Premier Group's summer party this weekend. Everyone enjoyed the caricatures and I had a great time as well ! If you would like me to caricature at your corporate event just drop me a line or an email.

Gift Commission - Process

I have just finished off this 8 person commission for the website of Temple Street Childrens Hospital. This charity do some fantastic work and I urge you to visit their website and offer any support that you can. I have an event next month with Temple Street where I hope to bring so fun to their Gala fundraiser.

I have shown below the process that I go though when creating a commission.

First off is a rough Layout, then a pencil draft - this is sent to the client and if changes are required then this is the last point to do it. I then Ink everything and finally go to color.

Bacack Obama Sketch


I thought it was time to have another shot at the President of the United States. I really struggled to get this sketch the way I wanted it. Not 100% but reasonably pleased with it in the end.
