Barb On The Fence

Say hello to Barb. She contacted me a little while ago and asked me to create a caricature for her. She said that she would like me to draw her standing by (not on) a picket fence. She also request that I add Daylilies to her drawing. It's interesting to see all the different scenarios that people come up with for their illustration.

I had fun looking up photographs of Daylilies on the web to help me know how to draw them. After she saw the caricature, Barb said that I sure knew my Daylilies well. The truth is that I think I created some new breeds of flowers here. The same goes for the butterflies.

You can find Barb's blog here. She says that she is having it redesigned so that she can include this illustration, and that to happen in the near future.

One thing I learned while working with Barb: When people send you a head shot, don't turn around and ask for a full body photograph. People tend to balk at that kind of request.

My apologies Barb, and thank you for using me for your cartoon needs.

Rick, Saw you visited my blog. Nice to meet you. LOVE YOUR BLOG. I love that God gave some people an artistic talent so I can decorate. If it had to come from me, then it would be finger painting/bubble painting/water color painting/ or my recent favorite pine tree branch painting the kids have completed at school or stick figures that I have created. I have NO ART in my body. My husband does, though. He likes to draw funny looking faces.

I will be back!

Lynette said...

Your talent makes me nauseous, but in a good kind of way.

Andrea said...

This is a great caricature! Do you charge for these things? If so, we need to know prices, hon!

And I nearly choked on my coffee at the full-body-shot statement. :)

Lucille said...

Once again I stand in awe of your talent. I'd also be interested in what your $$$ is. Maybe you should post something since a lot of us admire your work!

I checked out a bunch of your posts and drawings. Not being an artist myself, it's extremely fascinating to read about the thought process that went into your art.
