Happy 4th of July

Timid-Lion-Marketing-StickerHey Hey! Welcome back to the blog. Tomorrow is the 4th of July here in the US and it should be a fun holiday weekend ahead. Luckily for us, our sales have started to pick back up. Etsy went dormant for a bit and caricature gig season came to an end with the school year. However, we have started to see a pickup in sales and booked a few gigs.

My hope is to start taking a little more time with these blog posts and talking about meaningful things to art and the creative process. It will also be nice to discuss the business side of things and the link between creativity and depression/anxiety. Look for more robust posts soon.

In the meantime, if you are in the St. Louis area, feel free to come hang out with me Friday night at Pieces STL. You know Pieces, the local board game bar and grill. We always have a good time so come out and get a free caricature!

Caricatures of the Week #8

Hey Hey everybody and welcome back to the Timid Lion Blog. What a whirlwind two months it has been. This is the busy time of year for caricature gigs and I am lucky enough to stay busy multiple days a month, drawing at weddings/after proms/etc.. It also happened to coincide with the St. Louis Blues historic Stanley Cup Playoffs run, which ended Wednesday with them winning the Stanley Cup for the first time!

Needless to say (as a huge Blues fan), it has been hard to stay productive during this run. My mind has been focused on Blues hockey. But, I did manage to keep up with all of my work. Here are a few of my favorite caricatures from the past week. These were all from Etsy purchases, which you can check out here. We are always open for commission and our caricatures start at just $10. Take a look at our amazing customers feedback! Send us a ROAR! We always ROAR! back 🙂 Enjoy the artwork!

Caricatures of the Week #7

Hey Hey! Welcome back to the Timid Lion blog. It’s been a few week’s since the last post here. I’ve been busy with caricatures and Blues hockey. The Blues took a 3-2 lead in the Stanley Cup Final last night and so Sunday could be a big day. I’m very excited. And nervous. One more Gloria universe! Just one more Gloria!

Anywho, here are a few of my favorite caricatures over the last week or two. March-June is the busy time of year for live caricature work. From after-prom parties to wedding receptions, we are all over the place. I haven’t been able to get down to Pieces but hopefully I can get back there next week, I enjoy working there. The Etsy sales have stayed strong, this year has been busier than any other. A few projects were quite large, including a series for Washington University that featured 15 color caricatures and a 24″x36″ poster. Whew. I am officially caught up now so if you are interesting in purchasing some artwork, now is the time to jump in! Enjoy a look at our favorite caricatures, until next time, so long everybody!

Caricatures of the Week #6

Whew! What a week. The St. Louis Blues have advanced to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1970. I’m a huge hockey fan and I have to be honest, it has been hard to concentrate on anything other than this playoff run. I’ve listened to “Gloria” by Laura Branigan way more times than I care to think and I hope I get to listen to it 4 more times. Here are a few of my favorite caricatures from the past week. Grab your caricature here.

Caricatures of the Week #5

Hey Hey and welcome back! It’s Friday, which means it is time for another edition of the Caricatures of the Week! Every Friday, I share some of my favorites caricatures drawn in the past seven days. This time of year is very busy for caricature gigs as there are lots of wedding receptions, after proms and corporate events that need entertainment. If you are in the St. Louis area and are looking for something fun for your next event, contact us for more information! We also sell our caricatures through our Etsy store. Once you make your purchase, we will be in touch with how to send photos to us. Let’s take a look at our favorite artwork from last week:

A few of these are going to be used to make samples of digital caricatures. That is a new item that I just added to the Etsy store so I need to bulk the sample section up there. A few of these had the names on the art as they were for a wedding party. Obviously, the names have been redacted. Well, that will do it for now. We will see you here next week and until next time, so long everybody!
