I was commissioned to do a group caricature for the office crew of a Princess Cruise Line staff. Along with the group photo I was sent info pertaining to the specific duties of each staff member. Makes a great framed piece of art to hang in the office. Here, I've also included the actual group photo so you can judge the likenesses yourself.
I have found that caricature artwork can range from the common to the sublime. From a simple line sketch to something much more intricate. The main subject in this caricature was a lady who held a mythical/spiritual belief in life, plus a love of nature. This artwork is an attempt to represent not only the likeness of the subject, but also those things dear to her personal life.
One of my guilty pleasures in life is musical theatre. Recently I joined the cast of "GEORGE M" at the Melon Patch Playhouse in Leesburg, Florida. It was my honor to design the artwork for the cast Tshirt . The artwork design BEING the cast itself!
Shortly after relocating to Lake County, Florida, I developed the concept for a cartoon strip called "Sol Mates", featuring a cast of characters naturally found in the state of Florida. I liked the idea of using the play on words "soul mates" and "sol mates" ("sol" being the Spanish word for sun)

I was commissioned to create this character for a gentleman to add to his website, promoting classified advertisements in Central Florida. Would make a great mascot/logo for someone who wants to open a new business: The Pink Gator Shoppe or Le Pink Gatour Salon. Any offers?
