This week, my adventurous job took my husband Jordan and I to Florida with the California Boys at Santa’s Enchanted Forest, Miami. We get to work hard and play hard with people we love. This beginning part has no real connection to the actual reason I’m posting, but I wanted to say it anyway.

Often, we have customers asking us for copies of their pictures. “Well cant you just draw it again quick for free?” To which my response is, ” You dumb bunny.” I can’t wait for the day when customers understand the value of a persons time. Essentially, I’m being asked to do a whole other drawing, so why wouldn’t they expect to pay for it? Every now and then, however, you get some cool cats who want a second drawing of themselves, and not even a copy! These two girls came up wanting just that. What I love about being asked to do a second drawing, is that it gives me a chance to really work out their faces better; a real treat for me. Plus, the girls were awesome customers which made the whole experience ten times better.

This is the first drawing I did. I was okay with it, but not floored by the exaggeration or composition. Still nice though.

This second one I liked so much better on both counts of exaggeration and composition. Plus, I think it’s just more fun to look at :)

And to finish my post, heres your dose of cuteness for the week

Beautiful St. Pete Beach in Florida hosted the 20th annual International Society of Caricature Artists (ISCA) Convention. We met. We drew. We laughed. We got pasty from being indoors 3 days straight. It was great.

I didn’t take home anything this year, but i felt my work has really improved.

The Glow, it mesmerizes...

The Convention was absolutely amazing, mostly because of the people i got to spend it with. Cuz i get by with a little help from my friends, OOOOOOOOOOO! (just sing it in your head and it should make more sense)

They love me so much!

Next year the convention is in San Antonio. Awesome.

My bucketlist consists of simple things. Get published, travel to exotic worlds, and jump out of a plane. This week while working the Volusia Co Fair, I had the opportunity to go to Skydive Deland with some friends from the fair. This price was right and the hours worked out to my advantage allowing me to go. Plus, my husband was super supportive. Without going into too much detail, it was the most amazing experience of my life!

I will be posting the videos from that in about 2 weeks onto YouTube after I edit them together. It would be sooner but I have ISCA Convention this coming week.

Speaking of conventions. Yesterday was the last day of the volusia co. Fair, and I have got to say I did some work that makes me feel confident and ready for this week.
