Back to some Caricaturing

My apologies for taking so long to post. I've had a LOT of personal stuff going on over here. All has been good.. but just plain ole' busy.

Here are some of my latest caricatures. I haven't posted any in a while.. cause I was getting so caught up in the 'Digital Illustrations' for Commissions. I was almost starting to forget how to draw the freehand caricatures! :P *zoinks scoob!*

Sorry.. some of these I don't have reference photos of the people.. because.. I'm too busy & also too lazy to load them all up.. lol. So.. only the last ones have reference photos of who I drew.
The next two below were colored digitally.. and the font was done digitally obviously on the 1st one.This one below was cool. They took my drawing & made shirts out of them for their Bachelor & Bachelorette ('Hens Night' in Australia) parties. Yeah... this one below.. was a bit of a strain on my brain. I hate drawing bikes. :P But, I figured out how to make it look somewhat decent.This next one below was of some mentally disabled kids. I tend to find it a challenge to draw them both cute without taking off any likeness. But this was the best I could do. The kid on the very left.. probably has the most deformed facial expression. I did my best to not make him completely different from the rest of the kids.Yes! I could have gotten more creative with these next two.. by actually having them playing in the drawings.. but, with my limited time.. I just didn't. lol. :P

Are You A Good Person - Animation by, Cedric Hohnstadt

Oh.. man!! I totally LOVE this animation. I've been so excited waiting patiently for it to come out.. and it's finally here! YAAY! Cedric, an animator friend of mine did this for Living Waters Ministry! It's sooooo mega-cool! Watch it & enjoy!

Embosser Illustration

A DEPICTION OF: "The Holy Spirit","The Cross" & "The World".
This is an Embosser Design I drew up for a brother & sister in Christ - from our old church.

Album Cover - Steve Rowe

okay.. well, this is an album cover I did for a christian metal band. I'm not into metal, nor have I ever.. so this was a bit of a challenge for me. lol. Anyhow, Steve Rowe (owner of Rowe Productions & Wonrowe Vision)generously contacted me(He's also the main Artist of Mortification & Light Force). He had a very precise requested description for me. I posted it below the images. It will give you some definition of what's going on in the artwork.

Description: The front cover is the Robocoptor flying through the air towards like the edge of hell. People are falling in with shock & some standing around like talking & laughing not recognizing the danger. Some see the close danger & are climbing a rope ladder sent down by Robaocotor to rescue them. They are looking across at hell, climbing the ladder relieved that they are being rescued. A big devil is on the left threatening Robocopor but Robocoptor is shooting him with machine gun rounds from his landing pads underneath the copter. That is what he lands on like a normal copter. The background will go off into distant twisted hills. Like this is the last valley of life outside Christ just before death comes. Like rescuing people a few metres from hell just before they die. Characters with Suits, long hairs, punks, woman in dress & heels. Just a Cross section of society. All with 1 last chance to be saved. - Steve Rowe

Living Waters Caricatures (all)

Don't know if I posted ALL of these. I sort of forgot to post some of them.. so, I figured I'd do it all in one hit. These are all the caricatures I got to have the pleasure drawing for 'Way of the Master/Living Waters'. It was a blast to help out. They were all drawn & digitally painted in 'Corel Painter'.

News Article.

Our friend Tim Gardner, (who is another former caricature colleague & friend of the 'caricature connection' team) found this article of Michele's accident. The story basically clarifies the events.

In Memory of Michele Nichols - R.I.P. (28 years old)

Shocking Sad News from my old job. :( A friend of mine just passed away last night.

I'm glad I got to see her one last time on my last visit earlier this year about 3 1/2 months ago. Though, it was so short. Here are some photos I got to take with her & some of the other cc'rs (Caricature Connection Team).
When she started over at CC... it was always fun to work with her & at gigs too. She was always so honest & kind to everyone around her. And always light up the room. She'll be greatly missed.
This is a photo of Michele, Mike Duron & LuAndra at a caricature gig.
Below was the memo I our boss, Keelan Parham, from Disney wrote:
CC Gang...

I just don't know what to say.

A few hours ago I received a phone call from a former CCer, Laura Bonacquisti. Barbie and I have been reeling in disbelief for the last few hours. Laura, you see, was a former roommate and very close friend of beloved CC Lead Michele Nichols. If you've caught the national News today, you know that a small plane went down late last night in Minnesota. Michele was on that plane.

She did not survive. Her family graciously asked Laura to contact us and Michele's entire CC family. Michele was our newest, and proudest CC Lead, and an amazing, incredible artist. But beyond that, she was an amazing, incredible person. I am so glad to know that she was a fellow born again Christian and I have the assurance of seeing her again soon.

Laura has promised to keep us all updated on the funeral arrangements. Barbie and I are absolutely shellshocked. Our condolences go out to her entire family, especially her Dad, our friend Randy Nichols.

Randy was the music leader at a church Barbie and I attended for a few years and an all around amazing, gifted musician. I will never forget being at a gig at the Grand Floridian a few years ago, when Randy jumped off the stage ( he was there with his band, performing) after a set was done, and proceeded to make his way to where we were set up drawing caricatures. It was a large event, and we had many artists there. He spoke to someone, and they referred him to me. Not recognizing me from church, he asked how someone got a job doing this, drawing caricatures. He told me he had a daughter that was a really good artist. I gave him my name and number, but figured I would never hear anything back from it.

Two months or less later, his daughter, Michele, started at CC. I will never forget her smile, her rapport with guests, her spirit. After several years with us, it was obvious that Michele was one of the best and brightest CC had ever had the chance to work with. So her promotion to "Lead" status was long overdue. She seemed so proud of becoming a Lead, and we were so happy to have her in that capacity. I only wish it had lasted longer.

Everytime Barbie or Ted does the schedule, they will miss her. Everytime I work a gig, I'll be looking for her to come around the corner.

We love you, Michele.

We will see you soon.

Daniel & Terri's Anniversary Caricature

Here are 2 of my very good brother & sister's in Christ, "Daniel & Terri".
I hand drew this & colored it with 'watercolor paints'. This month of June is their Anniversary!
These two are gems! They are overly generous people who I was blessed to have met since about 3 years ago. I think for as long as I've been out here in Australia. Terri has been a very loving godly woman who's not only a prayer warrior but a friend who is always looking to help lift someone else up & give them encouragement through their lives. She & her husband are 2 of a kind. They are always willing to give a helping hand & boldly claim Jesus as Lord & Savior of their lives. Daniel is a computer scientist. I call him a computer genius. Terri is also a home-making sewing machine expert, singer, Cinema 4D Designer & Multi-Computer Program Tester. Without her Daniel would not be able to cope. lol. ;D

Caricature of "Beth Moore"

Here's a Beth Moore Caricature I did the other day.
I've been doing a 'Bible-Study' at the Ladies Ministry at my Church.
It's been really good. This lady is really funny, but at the same time,
she speaks the truth!

I think EVERY Ladies Ministry should have this teaching in their church. I've learned soooo much! I highly recommend it in a big way. It's NOT a 'man-bashing-teaching' & it's NOT a 'feminist-teaching' either.. it's straight-up biblical. The good stuff! :)

Her Website:


Below is a Clip from her bible study on Esther, entitled "It's Tough Being a Woman". which I highly recommend!

Barbara Cameron's "A Full House of Growing Pains"

Here's a quick caricature I drew of Barbara Cameron
(Her birthday just passed June 8th & so I gave her this as a gift)

If you haven't read this book, "A Full House of Growing Pains" you are missing out! Barbara Cameron, (who is the mother of 4 - the "The little Growing Pain - Kirk Cameron" & also of Candace Cameron from tv show, "Full House", as well as Bridgette & Melissa Cameron) pours her heart out in this story about all her own personal trials she dealt with in her life. The good & the bad. She was very brave to have been so honest.

It was of great delight to me.. I was very grateful... and ashamed I didn't read it sooner! It takes me a while sometimes to get to the books I have sitting on my shelf! lol. It was so difficult putting the book down. I just wanted to continue to read on. This book will make you cry & laugh feeling every bit of emotional experience. It's given me a sort of relief to realize I'm not the only female in the world who has so many clusters of emotional thoughts running through my mind constantly. lol. ♥

Nick Vujicic - Life Without Limbs

Justin Peters Caricature

I redrew Justin as promised a while back ago. lol. The other one of just his face.. was a bit boring.. so I made him a proper face & body caricature. :) I was trying not to lose the likeness of him.. cause I wanted to give him an expression of 'questioning'. Anyways, for those of you who have never heard of Justin.. His ministry focuses on how to Discern between 'God's Biblical Truth' vs. 'Straight-up Heresy'.Really he helps you to seek the truth by actually READING & VERIFYING scripture WITH scripture within the bible.. instead of sole taking someone's word for it just by listening to a pastor preach or a teacher teach. God clearly warns us to be alarmed, especially in the last days. He points to the Bereans who studied (not just read) the scriptures daily.

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character..., for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. (Acts 17:11)

(v. 12 Therefore many of them believed;) 'Be Like The Bereans'

An Evil Evil Act

The volume is quite low in the first minute... but will gradually begin to get louder & clearer by: -11:00. So please be patient & listen carefully. The story might change your life.
Despite what modern preachers tell you, becoming a Christian does not "improve" your life on this earth, or guarantee that you will be insulated against the pains of everyday living (those who believe otherwise don’t know their Bibles). This media interview is evidence of that.

Many contemporary atheists are the tragic result of an unbiblical gospel. Never believe a preacher, unless it can be substantiated by the Scriptures._Ray Comfort
