Caricatures of Romney, LaLanne, Barry and Portillo

I've been drawing caricatures for the Examiner Sunday covers since July 2008. For a bulk of the time, I was doing three each week for the newspapers in Washington, San Francisco and Baltimore. But now my days on the Sunday cover have come to a close as the newspapers will be running a more news-oriented front page. I have mixed feelings about the change. On one hand, it means I can now draw an extra editorial cartoon each week and get more sleep; on the other, I'll miss the challenge and teaching experience of the caricature process. I can walk away from the past 15 months feeling happy that I've learned so many things about drawing and painting. It's been a crash-course all along for me, but I know the skills I gained will help me in many other artistic endeavors. I do hope readers have enjoyed the artwork. The caricatures of Mitt Romney and Jack LaLanne are the final two that were published.
