Caricaturing at the America's Cup in Plymouth - After

I didn't take many photos (rather a shame), and all the caricatures I did they got to keep of course, so not much to show.
At one point there was a massive group of 13~14 year old high school kids crowded around us, all wanting a caricature, so I did several two-person caricatures - crazy. I actually found it quite useful though, having another face next to the one you're drawing to help compare features when you're drawing quickly.
I'm really glad I pushed myself into doing it though. You've got to take risks. Being an artist means taking risks, feeling like an idiot, learning on your feet and blagging your way through it all while smiling and exuding a pencil-thin illusion of professionalism.

Caricaturing at the America's Cup in Plymouth - Before

Hey there peeps

This is a quick update to say I've been commissioned as a caricaturist at the Plymouth University's marquee at The Hoe during the America's Cup world sailing celebrations in Plymouth.
  It's a bloody terrifying thought that I'll be drawing people live in front of them, and then giving them what I've drawn. I've never done it before, but hopefully I'll learn quick.
  I've no idea about times or pricing yet, I'm being paid but I don't know by whom (I think the Uni is paying me rather than people paying me for their caricature) or how much, for how long, which days I'm supposed to be there etc. it's all a bit last-minute I think. The America's Cup is all this week though so I presume I could be working there tomorrow maybe (I mean today, it's 0:35am). 

Here's a sketch of Brad Pitt I did for practice.

...and here's a really really cheesy one of me.

I'm going for the disproportioned style. If I tried drawing people realistically under that sort of stress I think I'd probably just end up making them look ridiculous anyway. 

Wish me luck.
