Happy New Year!!! 2011 Come on Down!!!

Let it BEGIN!!!!!!!!

I wish you all an awesome 2011!!! Thanks to all who take the time to stop by this blog, it's greatly appreciated :D   One of my New Year's Resolutions will be to update more frequently and offer a more enriching art blog...whoa, those are some great ambitions....geez I hope I can keep that resolution.

That aside, new things are coming your way from Ricky Animation! So stay tuned! 2010 brought new clients and projects, more opportunities to draw live caricatures at events, art classes to continually improve artistic skills, new equipment to help in bigger projects, and new friends and connections.
   I want to push myself more this year, artistically, and not waste any more time waiting for things to happen. Expect new things from Ricky Animation in 2011!

"The way to get started, is to stop talking and start doing." --Walt Disney--

Make that you're mantra this year, cause I know it will be mine.

God Bless!

Caricature Avatar

Here's some sketches and the final version of an Caricature for someone's video presentation...they use this image as an avatar to put in a video podcast instead of their real pictures. Caricatures for all uses and occassions!
Here's the fellow himself.
Trying out different looks.
Final pencil versions. Ready for scanning.

Final vectorized version. He's ready for his closeup!

A poster I designed and drew for a Music Show in the Lompoc Valley, CA. Let me just say...this took longer, but I mean longer, to do than I expected. I'm talkin' about 8-10 hours kind of longer. That's cause I tried to get it done in like 2 days.....But alas, it turned out was a labor of love.  Some of the type has a "Seussical" flare to them, which I love. If you're in the area, stop by to hear some awesome local musicians: Allyssa Imano, Lisa Gumm, and Maurine Silva.
