 Here's just a couple caricatues from about a month or so ago.... seems more females want these drawn than men..... 😀 Actually I cartoon the female guest better than I do the male.

Panama Canal Caricatures

 The last of my cruise adventure caricatures! I promise! :) Here's what The Panama Canal looks like from the window beside where I drew caricatures that afternoon. Amazing feat! The caricature above was a popular theme for the cruise, I actually learned it while drawing caricatures in Disneyland.

Heartland Series

 A few years back I was asked to come and draw caricatures of the cast of the television series " Heartland." A well produced show on tv. The pretty blonde above is the star of the show and when it came time to draw her, of course I wanted to get it right, but as luck would have it, I just couldn't get her to look at me for any length of time ( she looks at attractive men all the time.... maybe she just didn't want to see me... :) ) So of course.... I blew the caricature likeness big time.... oh well.....   :)

A few of the ports I was able to see on my last working caricature cruise. I was lucky enough to visit Jamaica, Panama, Costa Rica, Columbia, Mexico and Florida. Caricature drawing was twice daily unless it was a port day. 27 caricature gigs in a row!

Here was my "office" while drawing aboard the ship last month. The right hand side was my "afternoon shift" and the left side was my "evening shift". The evening had some great duets playing to listen to while drawing caricatures of the ship guests.

 This caricature has been hanging on my wall, framed for about 4 years now.... I quickly drew a cartoon, caricature of Ringo Starr's manager, David Fishof...... VERY cool guy! Friend to the biggest rock stars on the planet, and manager to some of the largest sports stars as well, among many other business interests,

 Just a few more samples of some of the guests I caricatured recently while working on a cruise ship in Central America. Because they were guests I didn't want to take their actual photograph for comparison.... nowadays it's harder to get the photograph.

 Here's a couple more event caricatures I drew aboard a cruise ship in Central America about a month ago. It was a fun 27 gigs in a row! Great way to sharpen your caricature skills after a two year covid lockdown... :)

 A fun Calgary caricature for sure! A corporate event held at a golf course that enjoyed the party caricature style and a fun event with great guests to draw.

Cruise ship caricatures, Kelly Gannon

I just returned from a lengthy caricature gig down in Central America aboard a cruise ship. I think these were in around Columbia. Man... was it hot!!! The passengers were fantastic when getting their caricatures drawn aboard the ship.... I did on average two gigs a day for them.

Calgary Party Caricatures Kelly Gannon

Just a small sample of Calgary Party Caricatures by Kelly Gannon. Always on the fun side with a "cartoony" feel rather than a full blown exaggeration, not meant to offend but rather have fun.... maybe a little bit at your expense...  :) Cartoon caricatures are drawn at about 4 1/2 minutes per head... for bodies, a few minutes longer. Wonderful for corporate events, kid's parties and everything in between!

 A couple more quick studio "head and shoulder" cartoon caricatures done for Kids Up Front. Oh how I wish studio caricatures were this simple to do... just head and shoulders... black and white with grey tones and most important....they supply a fantastic photo to work from... :)

 Just a few cartoons I did for a youtube video.... always fun replicating a retro style cartoon. Cartoos are a great side track from my usual caricature work I do. I absolutely love drawing these style of cartoons.

I found a 50's palette to do the colors in and had to study so many 50/60's style cartoons to get the feel of it.... and I think it worked! ... :)

Tee Shirt Design

 I was asked by Karl Green, bassist for the British Invasion group "Herman's Hermits" to do a tee shirt design for him.

The caricature/cartoon would be Karl from the sixties image, then to his current image. Karl also asked that the background flag start with the British flag, then morph into the American flag.

I've drawn cartoon caricatures for many iconic sixties bands and would put Karl at the top as a musician that showed his appreciation for my work..... thanks Karl! It was my pleasure!

Calgary Caricature..... a very simple black and white cartoon/caricature of a lady that likes flowers. I wish all studio caricatures were this simple... :)

Calgary Wedding Caricatures

Just a couple samples from a recent wedding I drew caricatures at. Though the heading says " Calgary Wedding Caricatures"... this wedding actually took place in Canmore, AB.

Each "head" takes approx. 4 1/2 minutes to draw. Because of large amounts of guests, I only draw "head and shoulders" rather than full body...gags.

 Congratulations to the lovely coupe... all the best!!
