David Fishof, Calgary Caricaturist Kelly Gannon

I really like entrepreneurs, especially this man who I had the honor to spend a few days with and draw a digital caricature for...David Fishof……. creator and manager of Ringo Starr's All Starr Band. ( yes...THAT Ringo Starr....:) David's list of accomplishments are too many to put here, being a pro sports agent, author of business books, friends and manager of the biggest rock stars in the world, produced Dirty Dancing Live Tour, produced American Gladiators Live Tour.....you get the idea, and above all......just a heck of a nice guy!! Thanks David!!

When drawing caricatures of the guys I don't exaggerate all that much even though we're all led to believe that the guys want their features exaggerated....nope....they want it respectfully done just as the ladies do. If you want to be successful as a party caricaturist in Calgary, better temper your pen.... :)

Kids Caricatures, Calgary

It was so much easier when drawing kids to use a marker compared to my regular brush pen as kids usually like having a body, sport, activity drawn in which is much easier when using a marker.

Calgary Party Caricatures Kelly Gannon

Two lovely ladies I had the pleasure of drawing caricatures for in Cochrane this past Wednesday. I haven't kept up taking pictures for about 6 months now because I thought I would get a new phone first.....but that has not materialized yet. Hoping 2018 will have me drawing caricatures of thousands more guests!

Drawing party caricatures in Calgary over the Christmas season had me drawing hundreds of guests....but, I only took a couple pictures....time for a new phone for Christmas as my Samsung doesn't take good pictures because of it's age. I usually work in venues that are a bit too dark and don't really have time to get the greatest picture while other guests are standing in line to get their face caricatured.. Merry Christmas!

Caricature Venues in Calgary

As a caricature artist in Calgary I get to draw caricatures at some of the nicest parties in the city....I love my job! These are only a handful of venues I drew caricatures at this Christmas....though some venues can definitely be mediocre....it's the guests that really make the party! :)

I'm always honoured when the ladies come to me for a caricature at events, I've worked hard to draw the female as beautiful as I can. Thanks ladies!!! These lovely gals were drawn last month at The Banff Springs Hotel.

I was so fortunate to have drawn the cartoons for the sleeve of a cd featuring songs from the 1960's. I kept the style very retro keeping the colors basic as well as the drawings very simple.....man....I could do 100 more of these projects..... :)

I'm so lucky as a party caricaturist here in Calgary to get a chance to work in well over a hundred different rooms each year....here's just a couple this last month....there are of course many more, but thses rooms just looked darn nice! :)

About 70 % of my event caricatures are "couples"....these two looked so happy together while getting the caricature drawn...both so cheerful.....thanks John and Sara!

Window Splash for Halloween

Well last years Halloween window splash (above) beats this years for sure! I think from now on I'll draw less cartoons on the window and larger ones as well....but the trick or treaters did enjoy them!
