church lady

Well, not really an illustration. This is a theme park sample from 1992 of Dana Carvey as “The Church Lady” from his serial SNL skit. This original had been missing for years and was found this spring behind another sample in an old frame at my Minnesota park operation. Gotta love the lumpy body.

When I drew this sample I was 26 years old, had been doing “Married…with Children” for NOW Comics for about 2 years, had been doing live caricatures for about 7 years and had just started doing freelance illustration for a few clients.
