So I was at a caricature gig the other day at a local college, and I found this thing that I completely forgot about. I posted about this almost a year and a half ago, and I was kind of suprised to still see it. The picture itself isn't that great because I had to take it with my phone and I really had to up the contrast in order to see it. Here is a link old post, and below a picture of the before for people too lazy to click a mouse.

Years ago I tried to work for this guy. I interviewed with him and he even had me work for a day in his studio with his artists, just to see how I worked out. I was super excited because I thought I was on my way out of theme park caricatures and moving up. During that trial day I thought I had done pretty well and made a good impression and all that. After the work day ended I looked for this guy to talk about what he thought about actually hiring me, but he was nowhere to be found. So reluctantly I left and called him the next day, then the next, and for about a week without an answer or a call back. Now I could understand not being hired, but I was upset over him just never taking my calls and just never speaking to me again. That's no way to get rejected for a job.
Yesterday a friend of mine sent me a link to a story on Cartoon Brew on this guy. After reading the comments on the Orlando Sentinel article, I realize what a bullet I had dodged. I hope all those artists I worked with, and that were so helpful to me on that one day, are working and doing well today. It's tough out there.

Thought I would try more sketch to Photoshop stuff. I'm trying not to spend too much time on these. I tend to spend a while laboring over making the blocks of color the correct shapes, so this was an exercise in trying to make those decisions faster.
