The Many Sides of Doug

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.

That's just the kind of friend to have.

This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

I like your drawings a lot.

I was glad to hear that your daughter is okay. I know it's silly, but she's here without parents, and I just wondered about her.

Rick, you are a funny guy...and Doug will appreciate you being true to his *team*. I'll let you know his reaction. Thanks for the opportunity to give such a unique gift. Merry Christmas!

Very nice as always!

Although it would have been funny to put the patch on the wrong eye.

As a Cowboys fan I would not have noticed.
