This is Wendy, the event planner and admin for GlaxoSmithKline IT dept. She was a great help giving me some cannon fodder on all these guys. This was a blast and I have to admit a very tight nit and lively group! The food at Chamas Churrascaria was unbeeeelievable and served Rodizio style and let me tell you, immediately one of my favorite restaurants ever! I will definitely go back time and again! The staff was top notch and the different flavors of meat that they bring out on the skewers are mouth watering sensations and the salad bar is superb (try the smoked salmon...mmmmm mmm!)!! If your ever in the area and you love meat like I do, check it out. Don't usually plug the restaurants I work at but this one is worth it!
Movie Buff....don't know where my pic of him is??
Everyone seemed to have a blast. I know I did with this group!
Wine and Germ-X. 'Nuff said.
The Gadget man!!
Hocky and Country music?? And he's from the birthplace of NASCAR....Wilkesboro!
Super nice fella who happens to be a fan of Jimmy Johnson and most Hendrick Motorsports drivers, so I added all their numbers to his ride!
This lady was sweet and very energetic. She wanted something that brought out her beauty and that her husband would hang in his office. I think she just needs to just give him a polariod!
This gal just recently got engaged and had a very large rock to show for it. I had a few ideas bouncing around, like a wheelbarrel to haul it with, etc. But she mentioned that the last caricature she got had her sitting on a jet ski and she thought it was lame, so I did continued with the lameness!! Sorry! Couldnt resist. At least it wasn't a wheelbarrel.
Went to this cool little pub in Durham after the event (Post coming right up) I did down there and the guy walks in by the name of Clif (yeah one F) and just seemed to be full of character and had a great face for caricature. I drew this up and added a few elements of the scene as well. He didn't punch me in the mouth, he laughed and said....... I'm going to show this to my girlfriend. His buddy Bill (A professor of Nuerobiology at Duke!) was hanging with him (not at church, like he told his wife! sorry that one slipped) informed me that he should have added an 'S" to girlfriend. Play on Clif!

Just a quickie on some sketches I did last weekend at the Mall while I had some down time............ you know the type. Come in just to lurch around the mall and cuss about the weather. This is more of a portrait than caricature!! (note: I outlined her in body for better presentation but other than that, I had about 10 minutes to draw her)

I finished up a commissioned piece tonight and decided I would reward myself with some things I wanted to sketch! The top one is hopefully recognizable as Supes. The bottom pic is a guy who is a fantastic artist from down under. His work can be viewed on at the Drawing Board and his name is Chris Wahl. I was going to post it on the DB but for some reason it was denied?? Click the images to enlarge them if your a detail freak like I am!
