The Team of DOOM!

Hey Hey and welcome back! Well, game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final didn’t go the way Blues fans had hoped. Oh well, they are a better road team so let’s march into Boston and spoil their party like they have been spoiling ours. It should make for a fun game 7.

Here is a quick piece that I put together today. I’m a big wrestling fan, especially older wrestling. One of my favorite tag teams as a kid was Ron Simmons and Butch Reed. They were a team called Doom. They won the World Tag Team Championship a few times in 1989 and 1990. They originally wore masks. I used to do a lot more of these wrestling prints and then I took a break. Thanks for taking a look and Let’s Go Blues!

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!

Beer!

Hey Hey! Welcome back to another post here at the Timid Lion Blog. Today is Wednesday, which means today is Game 3 of the Western Conference Final. I’m a huge hockey fan/St. Louis Blues fan. These games are stressful but this playoff run has been fun to watch. Hopefully we can play “Gloria” tonight!

Here is a fun piece I put together last night. This comes from a sketch that I created a few years ago. There was a local beer festival in town and I was there to draw caricatures. These were from a series of sketches that I thought could have made fun prints. Then I realized that no one was going to have any interest in purchasing that type of thing. These sketched went into my “Future Projects” file and I played with them last night for about a half hour and came up with this fun 1960’s style illustration. It could be tweaked but it was a fun creative exercise.

Look at how happy they are. They are double-fisting the Bud Select 🙂 and having a good time. These fun projects are like digital sketches. They aren’t really going to be used for anything but you get to test your skills and try new things. Thanks for looking, let me know what you think. Until next time, so long everybody! Let’s Go Blues!

Caricatures of the Week #4

Hey Hey! Welcome back to the Timid Lion Blog. It’s Friday, which means it is time for another edition of the Caricatures of the Week! It has been a crazy week so far. We have completed 2/3 live drawing gigs. One more left to go, I’ll be at a wedding reception in Illinois. Of course, The St. Louis Blues defeated the Dallas Stars and are moving on to play the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Final. Game 1 is Saturday so I will be streaming the game on my phone while drawing. The boss gave me the ok to do it 🙂

Here are a few of my favorite drawings for the week. I’ve picked up several sales again through our Etsy store so I will be busy again. This is just becoming normal and I’m very happy about it. One of these drawings was a digital drawing which are always fun to create. It is a clean look, you can look into purchasing one here. Until next time, so long everybody!

Caricatures of the Week #3

Hello once again and welcome back! Happy Friday. We are back for another edition of our Caricatures of the Week series. Each week, I draw dozens of caricatures. This week was particularly busy as I had both an 8-person and 24-person order come in through the Etsy store. While drawing those, I was watching old episodes of Alf. This is my job. People pay me money and I get to draw caricatures and watch Alf. That is so cool to me.

If you are interested in checking out the other Caricature of the Week posts, click here! Also, we are always taking commissions for caricatures. But you knew that already, I won’t bore you with sales techniques. Click here for more info on that.

Most of these caricatures came from my visit to Pieces STL last Friday. It is such a fun place to draw, great atmosphere and wonderful people. I can’t say enough good things about them and if you’re in St. Louis, please give them a visit. Enjoy looking at our favorite drawings of the week and have a great weekend. Until next time, so long everybody!

Caricatures of the Week #2

Hello once again everyone and welcome back! It’s Friday and that means it is time for the Caricatures of the Week! As I said in last week’s post, this will be a regular weekly gimmick here on the blog. I’ll be continually looking for new content and with as many caricatures as I draw every week, this just seemed like a natural fit.

Last week, I had my regular weekly/bi-weekly night of drawing at Pieces in St. Louis as well as an overnight lock-in for high school seniors. I was able to sleep all day Saturday so staying up overnight wasn’t as big of an ordeal as I thought it would be. I’ve selected a few from each of those gigs as well as a few of our Etsy store sales. You can always purchase a caricature for yourself over at Etsy. Art starts at just $10! Until next time, so long everybody 🙂
