Something new for the kids!  絵本を作りました!

Exciting caricatures with sea creatures aren't the only thing we have for kids at the Caricature Japan booth. I would like to introduce my new book called Friends of the Sea. While children are having their drawing made, they can be entertained by reading this book full of cute sea creature drawings. This book is meant for kids of all ages and is educational as well as entertaining.


Each page features a sea creature in picture form. It also includes the animal's name in both Japanese and English.
How many names can your read in English?
In addition to the book, children can check out our Kids Corner with cute and entertaining toys.

Barack Obama

Recently I made a studio drawing of Barack Obama. I first did a portrait style sketch to study his features.

For the caricature I combined a marker and pastel drawing with computer imagery to show the different times of his life.

Sketching Will Smith

Recently I had a sketch drawing session where we practiced making sketches with pencils. I guest this style is more or less portrait style, so it was good to work on improving my skills in this area. Since I was making a caricature of Will Smith, I decided to do a pencil drawing of him also....

The caricature I made of Will Smith was done on the computer. It was from his role in the movie Hancock. I'm still studying how to use that too, but I'm constantly learning something new and it's getting easier.
