SAMPLE ARTWORK:  Below are three levels of artwork from a surprise Retirement Drawing

for a surgeon who worked with a local university. His friends emailed photos of him and

provided input on his plans to sail away.  

First the pencil rough….   Then the ink version…   Then final color. We hear he liked it!

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: These are often Surprise Gifts. 

Surprise Gift Caricatures drawn from your photos — always a big hit!  


Described below is the usual procedure to have a drawing done from a photograph.


First the client and I discuss what is needed, via email or telephone or in person,

and get a rough idea of what it will look like and likely will cost.

Then I get a photograph to draw from,

like this beautiful young doctor —

Source photo, surgeon drawing
 Then I work up a pencil layout that seems fun, send that over for your review.

In this case, she is rushing in a hospital. Our discussion had shown

her interests in specific sports teams, her work in the trauma area

and other factors to work into the image, making it as personal and fun as possible…

 When the pencil layout is approved  we ask prepayment, since this is custom art.

So we receive a credit card payment, or wait for a check, get that resolved.

Then I can go to the final pencil, get that approved and go on into the ink and color stage,

which is the most fun of course.

Finally we get the drawing to the client (YOU!),

via email, US Postal Service or other method. Shown here is the final ink —

—- and here at last is the final color on this project. I hear she liked it!
