Muppet/Sesame Street performer: Martin P. Robinson

The next Muppet/Sesame Street performer is Martin P. Robinson. 

Martin P. Robinson began working with The Jim Henson Company in 1980. Although he assisted on many Muppet performances, he's best known for his contribution to Sesame Street. 
He's been performing the character of Snuffleupagus (the front half and voice, that is) and Telly Monster as well as other characters since he started at Sesame Street in 1981. He still plays a vital role in the cast to this day.

Office party caricature gig.

Throwback Thursday: These are photos from a gig I did last December. It was for an office party. They had requested that I draw a few of the coordinators in advance to use for the invitations to the party. When I arrived at the event, they had also used the caricatures for the balloons and light-up souvenir cups!

Leprechaun Fireman.

Perfect post for St. Patrick's Day. This is a design I did for the Montgomery MD Fire Department. Whenever I draw a leprechaun, I always think that I'm drawing some distant Irish relative of mine.
