Sketch Time! – It’s Me :)

Hello once again ladies and gentlemen and welcome back! Occasionally, I will post sketches here. Today was a rough day mentally. I’m not sure if it is an artist thing or what but there are some days where I just don’t feel great. It is like there is a little man in my head bullying me at every turn. Nothing seems to feel good. I’ve tried exercising. Twice. I’ve tried being productive and working on caricatures that I need to mail for Etsy customers. I’ve worked on my book. It’s been rough. Well, I’ll keep trying. Here is little sketch that I did when I was drawing caricatures at Pieces last week. It’s a self-cartoon 🙂 Maybe I’ll clean him up some day. You can never have too many self-cartoons 😀 Until next time, so long everybody!

Live Caricatures from Pieces!

Hello once again ladies and gentleman and welcome back! Happy Monday. I wanted to start this week with a recap of the wonderful time I had drawing at Pieces on Saturday night. Pieces is a board game bar and cafe located in the Soulard neighborhood of St. Louis. It is a fantastic place with great food/drink and several hundred games to play.

They were all so nice to me and the reception was fantastic. When the night was said and done, I had drawn almost 50 caricatures! I was able to snap a few pics and I grabbed a few pictures from the Pieces instagram page as well. You should give them a follow, they are @STLPieces. Give me a follow as well, I’m @timidlion85. There is now a standing invitation for me to come back to draw each week. I’m very excited about that and I look forward to heading back in to draw another round! Thanks again to the staff for such a warm reception. See you all soon. Until next time, so long everybody!

Drawing Live at Pieces STL on March 23rd!

Hey Hey! Happy Wednesday everybody and welcome back to the Timid Lion blog. Some caricature news to share. I’ve worked out a deal with the AWESOME folks over at Pieces STL. Pieces is a Board Game Bar and Grill located near downtown St. Louis. It is a very cool concept. They have over 800 games in stock, located on shelves around the bar. You grab a table, grab a game and start having fun. They also serve tasty food and drinks. All in all, it is a really cool place to visit.

Check out Pieces if you’re in the St. Louis area. You won’t be disappointed!

Welp, I talked with the owner (who sounds like an awesome woman) and I will be drawing there this Saturday night from 4:30-9:30pm. Caricatures will be provided free of charge and it should be a ton of fun. I’m excited. Hopefully this will lead to a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly drawing gig. Should be great for networking and a lot of fun as well. Here is the flyer that we had made to hand out. If you’re in the St. Louis area and are looking for a fun thing to do on Saturday, head on over to Pieces!


Happy Monday!

Welcome back! It’s Monday, which means it is back to work. Unfortunately it must be a quick post today as I have several caricatures to draw, a children’s book to finish, a logo and a website to mockup. I’m a lucky guy. Head over to our Etsy store and buy a caricature, it’s only $10! Here is one that we shipped out today. It’s heading to O-H-I-O! Until next time, so long everybody!

More Coloring!

Hey All! Hopefully your weekend was fantastic. Mine was rather enjoyable as I took it easy, for the most part. I did sneak in some caricature drawing as our Etsy store has been selling caricatures like hot cakes. If you are looking for a fun gift for family or friends, check us out. I’m the busiest caricature artist on Etsy and am always excited to pick up more work. Our art starts at just $10!

Enough of the shill act 🙂 I’m not just here to sell art. Although I do appreciate paying my bills and eating food. I’m also here to share my passion of art. It’s what I do for fun, as well as a living. I’m still working on my own children’s book, Untitled 2019. As you may remember, last Friday, I posted a few color samples. I don’t want to give away the whole book, obviously, but a few pieces here and there won’t hurt. Here is another color sample of one of the main characters. Enjoy and until next time, so long everybody!
