Some caricatures of the artists drawn by co workers at Fasen Arts Las Vegas, Nevada

This was a great time in my life, my first experience into using my artistic talents to make money as a caricature artist in Las Vegas. The company was stationed in the Excalibur and Venetian Casinos. Our job as artists were to draw the people that wanted to see funny pictures of themselves. This company I found was the best because you were given freedom to draw and grow as an artist, please take note of the many varied techniques of drawing me. The paintings were all done using graphite pencil number 4 hardness and then coloring with the airbrush. These are all different interpretations of my face, I can see myself in each of the pictures!  It takes about 2 weeks to get used to drawing in front of people but it so much fun, I really enjoyed it.

If you want to try caricaturing its best to live in a warm destination like Vegas, Orlando, or Los Angeles. If you are ever in Disneyland make sure and see the portrait artists at work.

I hope this encourages you to try some caricatures of celebrities, yourself, or some friends or family!

regards,

Dan
