Commissions!on December 4, 2008 at 6:50 pm
I recently did a few commissions for a couple of people. One such commission that I just finished was for my good friend and fellow Community MX partner, Kim Cavanaugh. Kim wanted me to “cartoon-ize” one of his fellow co-workers, Lee – a busy, tech-savvy hockey mom that is addicted to text messaging. Here’s what I came up with:

Kim just sent me the tech video podcast he does in Florida called Palm Breeze Cafe. Here’s the YouTube video of Kim giving Lee the cartoon (above) that I did for both of them:
My illustration project is discussed at the very beginning of the show. And, if you want to learn a little bit about the program, Picasa, you can watch the rest of the video as well. Right after Lee receives the cartoon, you can also see the extra little “surprise” I add to every commissioned sketch that someone orders from me.
I also did two other recent commissions. One is for a Christmas present so I’m reluctant to show that until after Christmas but suffice to say, it involves a caricature of Chuck Norris that came out really great (I think).
Here is the Spider-Woman commission I mentioned before. It’s still a work in progress and doesn’t have any text yet (but I know what the dialog is). If you want to see the full image, click on the picture below:
Once the entire thing is done, I’ll fix the link so that the larger version is the final version.
Also, if you’re interested in getting a caricature or commission done:
Please send me an e-mail at capesnbabes [at] gmail [dot] com for prices and other information/details.
If you’re interested in getting a caricature done:
I will need to have a very good, high quality close up photo of the subject matter I am caricaturing.
All commissions and caricatures are done on 9×12″ smooth bristol board and are full color (unless specified otherwise).
