2018 National Caricature Cartoon Society – The 72nd Annual Reuben Awards

This will be my 3rd year with the NCS’r’s and I had a blast meeting up with my cartoon friends. This year I sponsored my art friend, Ellen, to become a member of NCS and we roomed together at the Marriott downtown, Philly. Ellen and I make great roomies and we will do it again for sure!

One the first day, I was honored to be invited to be a part of the caricature panel seminar. A very good art friend and MAD celebrity, Tom Richmond, was the speaker of our caricature panel and I sat at on the stage table with other great cartoon heroes of mine: Stephen Silver, Ann Telneas, and Sam Viviano. We did a show and tell and had discussions about caricatures.Below are some photos of my Live Work.

Next were a few of my FUN digital rendered caricatures.

And, I created a little animation about the geometric shapes that I see when drawing individuals and two examples were Tom Richmond and Sam Viviano.  First I showed the geometric shapes in 3D and then what I visioned to add up to the finished drawing. lol

We had a few laughs during this caricature panel and I owe much thanks to Tom Richmond! He was one of my sponsors for the NCS membership! More to come!
