Sunday Mailbag- Comic Con Commissions?

April 23rd, 2017 | Posted in Mailbag

Q: You charge only $30 for a pencil sketch caricature at your booth at comic con but they start at $150 on your website. What gives? Why can’t I email you a picture and have you do it for $30? A: I get this one sometimes after I do a convention and people who see me there then email me and ask me to do one of the con prices commissions through the mail, which I will not do. The ones I do at comic cons are my live caricature style quick sketch caricatures like I do at theme parks. I take a little more… READ MORE

MAD Art of Caricature- Korean Edition!

April 18th, 2017 | Posted in News

Two years ago this August I wrote about how a publisher in Korea purchased the Korean foreign language rights to my book The Mad Art of Caricature, and planned on publishing a Korean language edition of it. After having heard from some caricature artist friends in Korea that the book was in recently print, I finally got my three copies that were part of the original deal in the mail yesterday. The publisher took a lot of liberties with the placement of the art, and made some weird choices. Especially on the cover, where they moved some of the images around ignoring the fact that… READ MORE
