Great art Derek, as they say... The old ones are the best.

Comedy makes the art so much more dynamic. Nice work Derek.

Our design studio used to do a lot of this sort of caricature stuff for special events, this is great Derek.

Thanks Andre, Michael and Alan. In this case I was supplied with quite a few tales the family wanted in the work.

Lovely Derek,

Cheers David and Ellen

Lovely stuff - you should do more of this D.

Thanks Michael. I don't get asked any more and with you and Ivan on the scene in a very funny way, I don't stand a chance.

I did a lots of these years back for birthdays, retirements etc. This A3 on paper, My style was not good enough to really caricature faces, so I would attempt a good likeness and build into each one some personal stuff and history. This was quite exceptional in contents and there was a story behind each scene. I think my fee was £80, no mount or frame.

Eleventyeight as my hashing pals called my new age recently, it's supposed to sound better. Trying to paint every day in acrylics using only expired credit/debit cards, and partially succeeding as they're only for me and not show these days.
