This is a 7" x 7" sketch for a larger oil on canvas piece I have planned. If you'd like to commission this at a specific size, I'd love to hear from you. Since it is somewhat monochromatic in concept, I can consider any specifically suggested hues. That's what I value about detailed sketches; more choices present themselves.
Not historically accurate, but very truthy. There was no love lost between the two.
City or country
Ring tone or tolling church bell
Lately, I've been fooling around with that peculiar American 1950's ethos, conformity laced with manic optimism.
Another fun collaboration with jokemeister and bestest buddy, Allen Forkum, publisher of Automotive Report. This toon accompanies the Buster McNutt (David Brooks) humor column.
If you're among the many non-profit organizations that put on shows, I'd be very interested in hearing about your projects and offering my time and know-how.

Above is my caricature of Doug Toney, a fellow caricaturist who got my attention recently with his very cool work.
Our styles are markedly different; mine being a bit old school with watercolors on paper with a smidgeon of Photoshop. Doug is more comfortable with creating most of his visual effects in Photoshop. But I will be clear about this: his drawing skill is more than evident and sets his work apart from other digital artists who obviously haven't mastered drawing. Doug's the real deal.
