Yay Zonacon! Sean and I barely made our money back. But we still had a lot of fun. Hopefully the next event will be better.

Ricky Watters gig.

I got to draw at a charity event at Ricky Watters house (pro football player, 49ers). He had some big named guest there including Julius Erving (Dr. J) and Ken Griffey Jr.

I also had a chance to jack up "Painter of Legends" Armando Delgado. He had three paintings up for auction that night. The paintings were of Dr.J, Ken Griffey Jr., and Rickey Watters.

I was jack'n up faces that day. I'm sure I won't be asked to draw for them again. Some people really got pissed off and gave me the drawing back. Most of the people had a great time and a lot of laughs...

Picture of Rickey Watters and family with us goofy artist (me, Ryan Rhoads, Rafael Diez). Sketch done by Ryan Rhoads. We had a lot of fun.

Spooky Empire's "Ultimate Horror Weekend" was amazing!!! Drawing Zombie Caricatures this weekend was the most fun I have ever had drawing at an event. Being that we were drawing Zombies, we had total freedom to exaggerate as much as we wanted. And the crowd loved it.

Working with Sean Gardner was awesome. He's one of the few artist that I work with, that knows what a real caricature is. He exaggerates to the extreme. His likeness is always on. And he pushes me to do better. Thank you Sean for inviting me out to draw with you this weekend.

Below are some caricatures we did at "Ultimate Horror Weekend". I was only able to take two pictures of mine because I don't have a camera. The top two are mine and the rest are Sean's. Enjoy...

Jean was on her way over and she wanted me to draw Twiggs for her. So I drew the first frame. It was her idea to have me beat up in the next frame (she loves me so much). The super wedgie over my head was my idea...

Johnny Cash Painting

Ryan and Jess Kaluza are the proud new owners of my original Johnny Cash painting. They got it matted and framed. It's on display in their new home in South Carolina. Thanks to Ryan and Jess for feeding a starving artist. I'm really glad you liked the painting.

Drunk Napkin drawings...

Jean and I had a wonderful night. Had dinner and drinks. Then we started drawing on the leftover napkins. We had a lot of fun. I think from now on, every time I drink I will draw on the napkins. Here are some of the napkins we sketched on that night. Jean drew baby Nick with his bear. And I drew Jean's Bear how I really see him. All washed up with no reason to live. Enjoy!

Twigs comic strip...

Jean has this teddy bear named Twigbee. They have been friends since she was 2 years old. Twigbee and I don't get along. He's always giving me dirty looks. And he stares at me all the time with those beety eyes. So I punch him and kick him across the room.
Anyway, Jean wanted me to draw a comic strip of her and Twigbee. Of course the bully is me. She told me what to draw and I drew it. Stupid bear... She bribed me with popcorn. I couldn't say no.

I want you to draw for me but I hate your artwork...

I hate people... This guy found me online. He wanted me to draw 2 sketches. One of him with a football body and one with a baseball body.
When we talked on the phone he kept over talking me. He had no interest in what I had to say.
Then he starts showing me other caricature artist's websites and tells me that he wants me to draw like them.
I ignored him and tried my best to get the sale. I just wanted him to send me photos so I can start drawing him.
Instead of a photo of himself, he sends me this Email with the caricature you see to the left.

"Nic here you go.
Would hair even on both sides. This photo has me riding in the wind, so you can't see the other side of my hair on the side below the ears."

He wanted me to redraw this sketch of his face and put a different body on it.

Then I realized this guy wants me to draw for him, but he hates my artwork, so he wants me to draw like someone else. What a wait of time. Why not just contact a different artist.

I was so pissed! I couldn't do it. I sent him on his way...

Tales from New York...

Hey guys. I'm at Canal Fest here in Tonawanda, New York. This is where I met Dave.

Say Hi Dave! Dave was a reject. Dave tried to tell me what to draw and I ignored him. He sat in my chair acting all ghetto and hard with his man boobs. When I showed him the sketch he got upset. "I tol you not to make my hea aw big!" I explained to him that he doesn't have the option to tell me what to draw. And that I'm here to make fun of him. Dave got mad and left.

So I decided to put Dave up as a demo. Little did I know, Dave was a local Celebrity. Not really, but a lot of people new him. For the next 3 days random people would come to the stand laughing. "Yo dog, that's Dave. Yeah, I know Dave". "Awe snap, Look is Dave." "Hey I know that guy, it's Dave." "Dave the prez of my car club."

So Dave became the mascot of the Fair.

I figured Dave got word that his sketch was hanging up at the stand so I took it down. I didn't want people to steal him. So now he's the RV mascot. Every time we leave the RV we say bye to Dave by smacking him in the face.

Hey, who know, maybe some of you guys know Dave too.

Niagara Falls, New York...

Hey Kids!!! I'm up in Niagara Falls. First time here. I have a little time between jobs, so I'm making the most of it.

These birds are nasty! They crap everywhere!!!

The Hurricane Deck was awesome! The water hits you so hard, it knocks you off your feet. When I was up there I turned into the water and it hit me in my no nos. Yeah! I'm never having kids now!!! So careful....turn away from the water.
