    Awesome Marlo! I love the background!

    Freckled Derelict said...

    I LOVE this caraciture!!!
    It is the best one I have seen of John K. bar none and I love how skinny David's head is and that Kaites hair is wrapped around John's neck like an arm!
    Marlo you are truly the queen and should be worshipped as such.

    Hammerson said...

    Fantastic caricature! I love the way you used such distinctive shapes for each character. Simply awesome.

    Freckled Derelict said...

    FREAKIN' shweet!!!

    David Germain said...

    I wished both John and Katie a happy birthday on my blog too. I didn't get Gemmill though.

    That's a great pic of all three of them. I especially like Katie's "deer-in-the-headlights" look.

    Felix Lim said...

    As a painter, I really admire your use of your colors, the warmth on the guy's face is just spot on.

    Chris N. said...

    This is awesome! I love how Katie's hair wraps around John and David's necks.

    You should be way more famous for your talents.

    bryan said...

    John will be angry when he finds out you caricatured him! Love katie's eyelashes. they look like grass coming out of her eyeballs.

    David Germain said...

    John will be angry when he finds out you caricatured him!

    Bah! I've drawn him 3 times already, he hasn't said or done thing one to me about it. Really, noone is above caricature. That's the best part about living in a Democracy.

    david germaine needs to address me by my first name, because this isnt a fucking all boys school or a football team.

    Trevour said...

    Yay for colors! The black bg really lets this trio of talent POP out at you! And GREAT contrast between the heads - such feng shui!

    Brett W. Thompson said...

    Wow, what an amazing drawing!! I particularly love Katie's eyes, hahaha :)

    The Gaber's Sketchblog said...

    You forgot about my birthday. I was born on Labor day. How Ironic.

    Kali Fontecchio said...

    Katie's hair can hug people???!! Holy crap!

    Great David and Katie- and you did John! Execution= super awesome crazy fun cool! Sorry for the lack of grammar!

    Marlo Meekins said...

    These are some insane comments today!

    David Germain said...

    And David Gemmill needs to stop spelling my last name with a fucking "e". All my life people have been putting "e"'s at the end and I'm like "THERE'S NO EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!"

    Once again, great caricatures, Meekins. ;)

    Vanoni! said...

    that John is f'n perfect - and so simple

    william wray said...

    I think the John K. drawing is kind of normal-- what dosen't he get the treatment?

    Daniel said...

    John K's face is surprisingly monotone for such an insanely cartoony guy. I caricatured him too, sent it to him by email, never got any feedback.

    Anyways, happy b-day to all, and to me too! Mine is Sept 18th.

    Add me on myspace Marlo! I sent ya an invite a while back, just click yes!

    Mine is on the 30th. Lots of September birthdays. Nice color. What did you use to color with? Marker? Paint? Take care, "Mr Bowen"

    Mr Bowen said...

    Lots of September birthdays. Mine is on the 30th. What did you color this with? I like how Katie's hair is around John like an arm.
    I am putting new art up on my, um myspace if you would, for some reason, care to compliment or criticize. Take care.

    Sorry. I may have sent 2, now 3 comments. You can disregard the 1st and 3rd, even the 2nd if you prefer.
    Mr Bowen

    Mr Bowen said...

    4th comment-You know what? After reading your whole write up, I see that you said you used marker. Now that comment would make me sound really stupid, so I guess that you can disregard them all. Sorry.

    Mr Bowen said...

    Yes, I am an ass. I hit enter accidentally again. Ugh, you put them all up? Please delete the blank one. I guess my question should have been what kind of markers did you use? You really achieve very nice blendings in your work.

    Katie said...

    MARLO! This drawing is wonderful. I love my eyelashes!!!

    I was mad at my birthday so I didn't do anything to celebrate. Wanna go to Coral this week and draw and eat? Let's make David accompany us too!

    Those are great! I had to look twice to find David.

    Jorge Garrido said...

    WHOAH! This pic takes distortion to a whole new level of absurdity!! DAve face is a STICK and Katie's ys are baloons, yet it still looks like them! This is probably one of the best ones yet!

    >david germaine needs to address me by my first name, because this isnt a fucking all boys school or a football team.
