Drawn to Weddings

The month of August marks the second wedding of a child of mine. This year!

Daughter Paula was married in February, and now it will be brother Benjamin's turn this month.
My kids were born 11 months apart; they will have been married six months apart.
Between them, what are they planning for children -- to have them 20 minutes apart..?
Welcome to the dog days of Summer issue of Not Your Usual Caricature Artist.
In a recent poll taken by the Wedding Bee website, the simple question was asked:

Caricatures at a Wedding -- Dumb or Fun?
Forty-six percent said they thought it was fun.  The "nays" garnered only 22 per cent while third and fourth place options came in at 21 and five per cent respectively.
Wedding Wire did a similar poll and virtually every respondent  said "Yay."  Emphatically.
Here are some wedding-related pieces I've done (including the little table display in the photo above):
A Sign-In Board for a couple who renewed their vows...a "Save the Date" magnet...a gift caricature to TV wedding show personality Tiffany Nieves-Cook...a Sign-In Board for a "second-time-around" couple...and my ad running currently in Charlotte Wedding magazine.



If you're a wedding planner and are not otherwise wed to the "same-old, same-old" for entertainment, you might wish to entertain the idea of caricatures for your bride.
See you again the first Tuesday of next month for another museum-worthy display of Not Your Usual Caricature Artist.
