It’s a tradition at Topco:  when you retire you get a caricature by that famous artist Whathername.  I love doing these projects. It’s not just getting the likeness, but then drawing in just enough of the hobby or interest to add character without detracting from the person or cluttering up the image.   In this case, I dealt with a music lover.  Needless to say, I’m partial to people with a passion for the arts.  I really enjoyed drawing Ken as an opera lover, a collector of guitars and a world traveler.  Thanks again, Maureen!

A photo will not do.  It’s a CD cover!

Not even a caricature in a clean line drawing would do, I suggested.  We need to go with wild colors.  So, after the line drawing was approved, I went for luminous colors and did two versions for the client’s consideration.  One of them got all the votes.  Voila!

The client is an opera singer who is moving into jazz.  He has recorded a CD to present to various jazz venues and nightspots.  The cover had to be as dazzling as his voice.  Double voila!

I look forward to hearing you scat, Jerry!
