an EPIC and boisterous Karicature Kon for all!

I went to the NCN con pre-planned to compete with some moody paintings of some extreme and only sort of silly caricatures, hoping to impress. After an eon of laboring (only to produce a bland overworked thing) I decided to give up and just get wasted with my caricature pals. I only started drawing some entertaining sketches thanks to Jert! Who convinced me to draw "for myself" over some syrup-soaked bacon. Thanks, Cowpussy!




Here's my on-site observations of fellow caricature artists:
















I can't and don't want to remember what i said to Jan in this photo!

I am going through post-con parting pains, 6 days was not enough time!

You didn't win??!! Man, that sucks.

I take it Jan was the winner. I just saw his stuff online. His drawings aren't really better than yours, they're just shinier. In that, he makes all his people look like they're made out of polished porceline. It's kind of silly if that's the edge he had over everyone else.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Sounds like fun!

Chloe Cumming said...

Bloody Hell!

What beautiful people you meet.

Spect you deserved some first prizes. It's probably a conspiracy of some kind.

Have to catch up more properly soon.

I hope if we meet you don't get trapped between my buttocks. It seems to be a hazard you're prone to.

I like the 'winner gets the golden shower' and the crazy jack-toothed pig face guy underneath it! Looks like you all had a blast.

Jeff said...

Loving the one where you're sprawled across the giant gut. The border is a nice touch! Congrats on your PRIZES!

Pico said...

Keelan's so pretty.

I can't and don't want to remember what i said to Jan in this photo!
I'm guessing it has something to do with your offscreen left hand. It's probably on his opdebeecker.

Looks like a hoot! Glad somebody finally got you to loosen up - I was getting tired of all the boring, lifeless drawings you usually do!

Thpbpbt!

The Gaber's Sketchblog said...

That white out stick was the final touch some of these needed. Keep it.
You weren't around to provide the golden shower so some of us filled in for you. Next round is on you.

Danne8a said...

Fun and lively drawings, Marlo!
Judging by the caricatures, it looks like you hung out with quite a fun, unique crowd!

Felix Lim said...

That golden shower piece is breathtaking.

Jenny said...

Katie said...

Oh yeah...you can't say you can't draw bodies anymore!

Katie said...

you shoulda won first place for "Best Expression" with that drawing of you stuck in the gal's butt! Who is that, anyhow?

I reject the idea that someone there was "more humorous" than you!
