T-Shirt week!

Hi ho!
So I'm on vacation right now in Phoenix, it's AWESOME.  While here, I got a job doing this caricature.  It's for t-shirts for a darling girl's Bachelorette Party.  Her friend who commissioned me requested that she become a leprechaun holding chardonnay and shamrocks.  It was very fun to work on!  Thought I'd share!

I also got a job doing some vector images for a t-shirt design for an LDS girls camp in Idaho, working for graphic designer Deanna Weaver at Accent Design.  I'm pretty happy with how they turned out:

Unsolved Caricature: Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest:  Who knew his face is UN-caricaturable!

I drew his face over and over and over, and finally settled on this one for the final.  BAH!  Oh well.  Can't win 'em all.  This is the drawing before the actual painting; I'll have to post the finished painting later.  It turned out pretty great as far as the ART is concerned.  Ryan Seacrest still looks like a 50 year old man, and the painting turned out green so he looks like an alien.

Maybe that's it!  Is Ryan Seacrest extra-terrestrial?  Is that why not a single person in my Interpretive Drawing class full of illustrators could draw a caricature that actually LOOKED like Ryan Seacrest?  Special alien powers that keep humans from capturing an artistic likeness?  What gives.  E.T. why would you leave your friend stranded here?  He could have been hosting Universal Idol instead.  Gee...
