When i find an author I like I usually immerse myself into their work. I’ve really been info Matt Furey’s work lately and he calls himself Fure Cat a lot. When I first saw him sign his e-mails Fure Cat I though it read FUR cat. I thought, for an an ex wrester and a fitness guy he doesn’t strike me as a cute fluffy little kitty. When i realized he was writing Fure (like his last name) I felt like a bit of a dumb ass. Afterward I think my subconscious turned him into a kickass cat that I had to draw.
I don’t know why I love drawing fish so angry.
This apparently happened a while ago but I didn’t realize 45 year old Tyra Banks is on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. Age ain’t nuttin’ but a number and sexy is timeless. I finished this sketch to commemorate her achievement.
Like usual, I had a booth at the Arizona Bridal Show. And like my new usual I didn’t take any pictures but luckily Tiff took a few. This year I had to stop drawing early because I had a party to runoff to. Tiffany stayed and manned the fort. Should that be wommaned the fort then?

A con isn’t a con unless you get to draw a chain smoking banana.
Weddings Online did a story about the best Bridesmaid Gifts. Guess what? Personalized caricatures made the list. The caricature featured was done by artist Niall O’Loughlin.
Friday I drew at Studio 3’s Grand Opening. They do amazing work so I shouldn’t have been surprised when I saw their gorgeous new studio. They created such a world class facility, I can’t wait to take pictures there. https://www.studio3images.com
This is what it used to be like when I used to help my daughter Alexis do her homework. Doodling helped keep my mind off strangling her.
Usually my drawings get progressively more crazy at events but this was the first one of the day. She was a nurse by profession and nothing else popped in my mind so...
Feedback I received from a recent wedding:
"We absolutely loved having Adam at our reception and our guests were fascinated with his talent. He is a pleasure to work with. Our only regret, not booking him for a longer time frame. So my advice to anyone interested is to definitely book him because he is amazing and make sure you book him for a good chunk of time because once one of your guest gets a caricature done - everyone else will want one!"
The theme for the 2018 Gold ’N Gavel Awards was superheroes and I drew the nominee and the nominators. Since I didn’t have to draw specific characters for everyone I approached it like I do my live work and just drew what felt natural for the model. As soon as I saw Ijana, I knew I wanted her to be Storm and Bethell was the perfect Colossus. They wouldn’t let me cover him in metal though. :) I also really liked Feeney’s fiery hair with the muted color background. Luckily the Dark Phoenix movie won’t be out for a while.
When I saw Jay’s picture, his scruffy face immediately reminded me of Stephen Amell from Arrow so the choice for them was easy. Plus I like the show. Well, before last season. Did I say that out loud?
Wong and Renaut as Batman literally cracks me up. I was told these two actually refer to themselves as Batman and Robin so I chose to go with Adam West/fun Batman instead of the more serious looks.

I grew up with Mad magazine and one thing I learned from Mort Drucker and a host of other artists is, dogs make drawings better.
