Hayley Is Still Down

Back on February 3rd I posted an illustrat- ion of Hayley and her family. When she ordered that drawing she also put in a request for a caricature of just her at her laptop. It took me a while to get back to it, but I finally finished it. Here she is again - Hayley, still Underdown, or Downunder. (Whatever) My blog has been getting some action from the southern hemisphere lately. That's fun.

Actually, I've had this drawing done for several weeks, but I keep forgetting to post it. I'm still at the drawing board working on more cartoons. In fact, I was up till late last night working on one - trying to get caught up.

Thanks to all of you who are patiently waiting. I've begun to warn people, when they make a request, that it may take a while before I get to it. For all of you who gave me a deadline, I think I'm still okay. So, hang in there.

Thanks Hayley for liking my work enough to request a second illustration. You knew what you were in for. I hope that you get enjoyment out of your caricatures for many years.

(I just love the eyes on that little one. Don't you?)

Very nice Rick! You are very clever. I picture you hunched over a desk, drawing like a crazy person. If you ever get out from under all of the requests, you should do a caricature of yourself for us!

To The Bean: I've thought about it.

To the Peach: Yes, great idea, and the first thing that I'll do... when I find the time.

Actually, the closest thing to a personal caricature that I've done is the one I published on the post about my sister's birthday back on March 8th. Only, that's pretty much what I actually look like.

You captured her face and eyes so well! And I LOVE Monsters Inc. The line work in that on is so expressive.

This is so cool. You do such nice work. I'm sure she must have been pleased with the results.
