After about 4 weekends at the zoo with my camera I thought I would post some of the goofier caricatures I did. Generally I work with a Markette marker at about 5 minutes a face. Actually from the 12 or so days I've worked these pics are from the last two. I've been studying Joe Bluhm http://joebluhm.blogspot.com/ and Grigor http://existentialdreams.blogspot.com/ and they supplied the kick in the butt I needed to step my game up. I made a vow that if women had a huge chin (or anything else not desirable) I wasn't going to pretty it up, I would exaggerate it to my craziest ability. If that means a little less sales thats ok, because my style was getting way to commercial. I feel like I'm much more free now and enjoying myself!! Enjoy.
ps. If anyone would like a caricature I can work something out with you. I can do one from an emailed picture no problem. fvallejo@ringling.edu

Francis - Those are awesome! I particularly like the guy in the hat. Also the fact that the little girl looks so upset, despite how adorable and happy she looks in her caricature. Hahaha.
