Last Saturday I traveled to the lovely town of Storm Lake, Iowa and drew caricatures at a rare gig with Florida based caricaturist and illustrator Jeff “Talltoon” Mandell. Jeff is enormously talented and a true visionary in the field of caricature and marketing… he had the foresight back in the infancy of the internet to register the URL www.caricature.com, and has been a pioneer in the world of live digital caricatures as well as the traditional method (i.e. drawing on dead trees) which is what we practiced at Buena Vista University. Jeff draws at corporate events, trade shows, colleges and functions all over the U.S.
It was fun hanging out with him and drawing at this event. I don’t come out of “gig retirement” too often, and it takes a good friend and caricaturist I admire greatly to talk me into it. Jeff is both.
