TOMO'S work was a total mindblower to get. I drew his caricature in blk and white on paper and was TOTALLY uprepared for this great painting of me that he did. I feel honored. Like everyone he knows me as "subwaysurfer" (thats the reason for the trains in my mouth) but also noticed that when I draw, I usually have a pen i my outh like a cigar .

I had the priviledge of meeting Jan Obdebeek personally when he visited New York years ago and he drew this one minute pencil caricature of me while sitting in the restaurant. It was my very first Exaggerated caricature, and I didn trealize how lucky I was to get it until I attended a couple of NCN Conventions later on.
Kathy did this caricature of me at the Nevada NCN Convention where we were both drawing each other ans spontaneously broke out in song and strting singing showtune duets. ( She ca REALLY sing! ) This photo doesnt do the caricature justice. She did this with pastels that were VERY densely covered that I thought I'd smudge it on the plane ride home.
I found these in a folder hiddle uder my living room couch. I thought I lost them forever. These are some FANTASTIC caricatures made by Japanese caricatures artists who I dont remember! AAAAARRRGH at a 2007 Convention in Nevada. If any NCN people Know who these folks are please let me know!

Jert is another master caricature cartoonist whose work I admire and imitate. He seems to draw without effort, nails the cartoon likeness with a minimal amount of lines, and airbrushes beautifully. Jeremy is a virtual giant about 6ft 5 inc well over 200 ibs. He looks like he'll just as soon snap your spine as draw your picture.
