Live retail caricatures.

This first one is from around Halloween of last year. Ashley was dressed up like the Phantom of the Opera and wanted to be riding a black horse. I was happy to oblige, but went through an entire black marker in the process.Far too often, I get a kid in my chair who is eating, or has a pacifier, or in this case, sucking their thumb, but the parents want me to draw their child WITHOUT those things. I like when the parents encourage me to draw their kids the way they ARE.
This one was from less than a week ago. She was from the U.K. and wanted me to draw her "as
cheeky"as she looked. Again, it's so refreshing to have your subject know what a caricature is and still want to be drawn that way.
