Show Home Caricatures

I get the opportunity to draw caricatures in numerous show homes in Calgary such as the young guest in the picture. He had asked for a hockey theme and make it humorous ….well, not that funny in a penalty box....but to him it was...:)

A fun studio caricature I drew of famed drummer Gregg Potter ( Gregg has played drums with Billy Idol, Joe Walsh, members of Cheap Trick and many more and now fronts The Buddy Rich Big Band)
This will be turned into a tee shirt design....and yes....Gregg loved the caricature!

Calgary Cartoonist

When not drawing caricatures for corporate events in Calgary I draw cartoons for clients. This young lady had asked me for a 60's style retro feel to her logo/cartoon. I loved the simplicity of drawing this style of cartoon. Would love to do more! :)

Calgary Wedding Caricatures

Occasionally I get asked to draw caricatures at weddings in Calgary and area such as the beautiful one above. Wedding caricatures are a way to keep your guests busy while the Bride and Groom are taking pictures.....plus they have something to take home with them....:)

Just a couple of digital caricatures I whipped up....though I don't do live digital or studio caricatures anymore, I guess I just wanted to see if I could still do them..... :)

Calgary Kids Party Caricatures in Calgary

Just a couple kids party caricatures drawn in Calgary....I get a chance to draw a quick body, gag, etc. unless there are a hundred kids and I'm the only caricature artist, then I just draw head and shoulders to keep the line moving.

Caricature Venues

Above are a few of the venues I had the opportunity to draw caricatures in Calgary over the Christmas season. The staff always takes extra care to have these venues looking great before the guests arrive.....hats off to you! The bottom picture was the scenery I looked onto in the area I was situated drawing caricatures....sometimes it was tough to only look at the subject I was drawing.....:)

Great Experience...meeting Paul Stanley of KISS

My new post has absolutely nothing to do with caricatures. You may not recognize this gentleman I'm standing with here last month in The States....if you put white face paint on his face...then paint a star over one eye then I'm sure you'll recognize him......yes, I had the great opportunity to meet Paul Stanley, lead singer for KISS...though when meeting someone like Paul, you suddenly have a loss for words! :)
Kel Gannon, Kelly Gannon
Here is another gentleman you may not recognize right away....  his onstage persona is that of a spaceman...Tommy Thayer, lead guitarist for KISS...Tommy was such a nice guy....I'm 6' 1"....look at the size of him!!!!…..:)
Kel Gannon, Kelly Gannon
I wish I had a video tape when I was introduced to this gentleman, Ringo Starr's manager had just been given a caricature drawn by myself and commented to this fellow that "I was a full-time cartoonist"......the fellow was actually impressed, but not as impressed as I was....he is John 5.....lead guitarist for Marylin Manson, Rob Zombie and David Lee Roth.....besides being a wicked good guitarist he was a nice guy to boot!

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!!
