Thanks for checking out my work. I appreciate the kind words shared by people visiting this site and try to post new caricatures every week.
I have been drawing all my life, but in 2008 I found the International Society of Caricature Artists
and fell in love with caricatures. I work everyday to improve and hopefully you can see improvements from my first posts here on this blog.
Within the last months (as of August 09) I have stated working on commissions for private parties and corporations. I hope to continue to grow and produce works of art for magazines and other publications.
If your interested, please contact me.
I also do dj and karaoke work. You can also find me on facebook.

Last June Weekend for 2008

I have to say I am trying to keep this blog somewhat updated. As it progresses, I hope to be telling you more about Caricature work and less about DJ and Karaoke. Not that i have anything against DJ/KJ, just drawing was my first love. So..
Thursday was a fun night at Ronnies Place. We have a nice crowd of regulars every week. This week Thursday night will be t
he 3rd of July so we are expecting a bigger crowd. We may even throw in a bunch of dance music. In fact, I am 90% sure we will. Ok make that 95%
Friday a night at the Mount Union Vets. Lisa was back from
vacation and we had a good crowd. A few weeks ago I talked with the management about July 4th. Being a Friday, I wanted to know it we would be having Karaoke that night. They said we would, but this week, a week before they said they did not want to have karaoke on July 4th. So for the record. I will not be at the VETS in Mount Union this week. I made some calls and will be playing at the Eagles Nest in Broad Top Pennsylvania, Friday July the 4th.
Saturday I played a Karaoke contest at the Mill Creek Fireman's new grounds. They had a sort of carnival. There were a good number
of people there, even thought it was hazy hot hot hot and humid. There were not as many people participating in the event as i would have hoped. I did take some photos and they are here scattered in this post.

Now for the personal crap. Last month my mother had a colonoscopy. They found a pre-cancerous mass. Last Friday she went to the hospital for surgery in Altoona. She was to have surgery at noon on Friday. It was to take about 45 minutes to an hour. I got there to see her at 3. I was told to go back to a room around the corner and there she was sitting up on a bad. I thought she was finished and sitting there. She actually hadn't even gone into surgery yet. I spend about an hour maybe a little more with her. My uncle was there and his wife. My moms husband also. At around 4 they came and said it's your turn. I watched them take mom down the hall and went home. I told them to call me as soon as they knew anything. I think it was around 7 pm the phone rang and it was my uncle's wife. She told me that mom was out of surgey and everything went smooth. She was in a recovery room and reting. I was never so scared in my life as when my Uncle's wife called and told me she was ok. I was scared because I was not sure what she was going to tell me. In anycase she is still in Altoona hospital, resting and recovering. I thank everyone for the prayers that were said on moms behalf. I am sure they helped. I thank God for getting her through everything. Life is short and I think about it more and more, the older if get.

Weekend Review June 22 2008

I haven't been updating as much, sorry. Not that I got a bunch of e mail demanding that I update, but I have been fairly busy. This week was another Good Thursday at Ronnie's Place. It was different. The bulk of the crowd got there very early. I believe that is why the night ended a little slow. Either way Thursday nights have been a lot of fun and growing every week.
Friday I was at the VETS in Mount Union. I was a little worried because last week was slow. It worked out that there was a good crowd and lots of singing. I do have to apologize for quitting early. It was not my idea. there was a bartender who told me to do that. I did get complaints and sorry.
Saturday at Memories was a blast the place was packed for a while. I say for a while because, well there was music issue. I would like to explain but I best not. I play what the person paying me ask me to play. So in any case I had a good time a
nd have a panoramic photo for your enjoyment. Click on the photo to see it all.

I also have been working on a caricature of Seinfeld which is here.

I will Start working on Drew Carey Next.

I was on youtube the other night and watched a bunch of Seinfeld bloopers. I thought i would give him a stab. I hope that over the time I post new caricatures to this blog, you are able to see improvement.

I made a commitment to this stuff a few months ago. Working on color now. I know this needs more work. I will post it on the Caricature Network forum and look for advice. Until then....

I like to take photos. I have several digital cameras, including a Digital Rebel which i hope to replace soon with maybe a Canon 40D, or is that D40. In any case here are a couple shots I took today that I liked. The picture of the bird is a bird house at the bottom of my yard. Last night there were 4 bluebirds causing a fuss. I went down today, got about 30 feet away and saw the little birds inside. I went and got my camera and a tri-pod and took a couple photos. The other photos is also from my back yard.

I know i have been slacking when it comes to posting here. It has been a busy couple weeks. I have been working some long hours at the Central Pennsylvania Auto Connection Magazine. Usually Mondays, and my sleeping habit gets spun all around. Usually, because of the DJ work, I am awake at night. Sometimes all night, so i try to keep that routine. Then I will get a phone call or have to get awake one morning and that causes my schedule to get all silly. I guess one of the benefits (a big one) is to be on a regular schedule. Well enough yakking about nothing I have a caricature to post today. It is of Steve Jobs of Apple computer. Again there is a monthly competition with the National Caricature Network. I did a pencil drawing of Steve first. I wasn't crazy about it and it didn't do real well on the forum. I thought i would have Steve trying to levitate an apple over his hand. I, well didn't do so well, so I picked up the pencil and tried again. More of a strait on view. I think it is a little better. It went over a little better in the form. I then took the pencil and colored it. Hope you like.

As for the Karaoke and DJ work, I have a bunch of photos from the last couple weeks and a very cool video. I haven't posted them. Mainly because every time I do, someone complains and i have to take it down. I Played at a new place over the weekend in Broad Top. It wasn't a huge crowd but i believe they had fun and they did ask me to come back and play again.

Dinner is calling now so I am out.
