SkiersDrawingThis drawing was commissioned here in the US as a Christmas gift for relatives who live in Austria.   The photos I worked from showed them standing in line, of course, and not piled up like that.  But, hey, for a caricature, you have to “pile things up.”  What fun!  I thoroughly enjoyed putting this together. And you know, this family in Austria enjoyed getting this gift and mom framed it right away. (I tried to imagine what it takes for a family of five to get all their gear together for a ski trip.  Ha!)

The man who commissioned the drawing of Béla Fleck’s family (previous post) liked that drawing so much that he decided this was a great gift idea. His son had gotten married that year and he thought, a caricature of the bride and groom would make an excellent Christmas present. And so it does! I got an email saying the newly weds loved it.Yeah!

This was a last minute idea and I was able to meet the deadline because the client had good photos of her friend and a good idea.  It can take a week to get everything right, but in this case the turnaround was just four days.  It’s all done by email: the client sends me photos, I email the sketch, the client comments/ approves, sends the payment and I do the final color version.  Just like that!  Works wonderfully.  You know what you’re paying for because you have approved it ahead of time.  Everybody’s happy.

12CarolDentistWhat’s a woman to do when she’s in love with her dentist, who is twenty years her junior and happily married with three musical kids. He plays the accordion and the kids play guitars and drums and such.  Long question.  The answer, of course, is “give him a Hilden Caricature for Christmas. “

This was a fun project with me advocating for more wildness and Carol chickening out and holding back.  Wineglass with native flag and barefoot (in the grass, oooh! giggle) is as far as I got with my (apparently limited) persuasion skills. We don’t want our dentists to be portrayed as wild.  Agreed.  Even reigned in, I enjoyed every step of the process. Thank you, Carol!

As a Christmas Gift to your fellow band members, you can’t beat a Caricature by Hilden.  You all have day jobs that require restraint and responsibility.  At night, you sing, you rock and you’re hot.  A photo will not bring out that attitude, that phantasy of stardom.  But here you are…ta-tah, yeah!  Thank you, Cindy.
