Staff Caricatures at D'Aria

I usually arrive about 40 minutes early for all my caricature events, just to make certain everything at the venue is in order,so nothing needs to be rushed. Another great thing about arriving early is that I can do a few warm up sketches with the staff before I start sketching the guests.
The folks below all work at D'Aria Estate in Durbanville, and they quickly lined up for their cartoon portraits while we were waiting for the guests to arrive from the ceremony.

Family Caricature Illustration

I recently posted about a digital caricature that I sketched of Christine Bernard and her folks here.
Christine was kind enough to send me a snap of her and her folks with their portrait.
Thanks Christine!

Cheri and Mark's wedding, D'Aria - Caricatures

I attended another wedding at the beautiful D'aria venue in Durbanville, Cape Town... this time it was the turn of Cheri and Mark.
I sketched about 80 caricature portraits at the pre drinks and reception.
Below are some of my favourite pics from the evening.

Lebanon Bike Trails, Grabouw, Caricatures

I generally work afternoon and evening events, so it was a bit unusual for me to be sketching in the beautiful Grabouw countryside at 7:30 AM.
I was there for the Lebanon Bike trails race on the 22nd of March, taking place at the Oak Lane Cottages.

Check out the Lebanon bike trails site here.

 The start of the race.

Stylised digital caricatures

I see a lot of faces in my profession, and I often feel like I could take the caricatures I draw at events even further, in order to turn them into very stylized characters.
Some of the drawings below are very exaggerated versions of people I have sketched in the past few months, and some are stylized amalgams of different people, who may have shared similar traits.
I think some of these could make for interesting cartoon characters.

I sketched some quick digital caricatures of a few of the folks I know in Hermanus.

I also included a self portrait in the bottom left corner.
