Character or Caricature – Why Not Both?

Creating original art from my imagination is a passion of mine. It is also a great way for me to apply my skills as a digital artist when I’m not working at an event drawing caricatures. One of the things I really enjoy is original character design. It’s a more free-flowing process and allows me to take some creative liberties during the process.

Along with the characters that I’ve created for a book that I’m currently working on, I also create characters for commercial use for clients. With some direction and detail, I’ve created characters for use in advertising and business logos, as well as for children’s books and animations. It’s so much fun and one of my favorite ways to keep working when I’m not booked for events.
