Becky commissioned me to create a Christmas gift for her husband Ron (a.k.a. Ronnie). Ron is a trapper and together, Becky and I came up with this particular scenario for his caricature.
I've stated before that I like cartoons where nature gets even. You need to know that I hunt, I fish, I make my dog take baths, so it's not like I'm an animal activist. I just find situations where nature has the upper hand great material for illustrating.
Becky wanted to make sure that I drew a hole in Ron's wadders. Reportedly, he owns (has owned) such a pair. One is tempted to try and ask him, "what good are wadders with a hole?" I guess that is just one of those burning questions that will only be answered in the "Here-After." (Or maybe he'll write me after Christmas - whichever comes first.)
Here is one of the photos Becky sent of their family for me to use while trying to capture the essence of Ron. GOOD LOOKING family! Don't you think? I love the dreamy look of the young one.
Merry Christmas Ronnie. Take care of that beautiful family of yours. It takes a special MAN to be the father of girls. To this fact I can attest.
