Kris asked me to create a Christmas gift for her husband Doug. Apparently Doug is not a blogger because she said that I could go ahead and post his illustration whenever I wanted to.
Here it (or rather "HE") is.
Below is the photographic evidence that I capture a facsimile of Doug's face. I hate to toot my own horn (actually I don't mind tooting it) but I think this caricature turned out fairly well.
Doug is apparently a complex guy. He likes electronic gadgets, barbecuing, works around the house, is an Oakland Raider fan, AND holds season ticket to the Oakland A's. Oh yes, least I forget, Doug is also a connoisseur of fine beer - or rather a consumer of beer. Me? Eeeh - not so much.
Doug, you and I can be friends, but I have to be up front with you - I am a Denver Broncos fan and it pained me to draw out the Raider logo for you. (And I resisted all temptations to put the patch over the wrong eye.)

I have a few illustrations that I am waiting until after Christmas to post because the clients don't want to chance someone seeing their caricature before the big day. I hope to get a number of e-mails after Christmas from the people that have placed orders with me - to tell me what the reaction of their loved one was.
