Life Coaching Caricatures: Bill the Piano player & Painting Nancy! – April 2nd, 2017

by on Apr.05, 2017, under Caricatures, Illusration

I had the opportunity to meet Bill at an event near Spring hill & Weeki Wachee, Florida on Sunday. I met him as he played Stardust and a medley from The Phantom of the Opera. He complained that he missed notes. Sounded great to me. Especially for a fellow of 94 years. Bill drove a tractor trailer most of his career in Canada after his family moved him from England as a teen.

Here’s the watercolor illustration i did of 80 year young Nancy, the birthday girl, who was being honored at the party.

Life coaching caricatures! in Tampa – June 2nd, 2017

by on Apr.02, 2017, under Caricatures

A few images of the life coaching caricatures I did at an event Saturday night in Tampa, Florida.

Back in February I figured I’d been posting too many of these event photos and figured I should hold off a bit before posting more. Well, a good 15 events later, here are some more.

The first photo is of Rhoda, who is 3 generations Native Floridian from Tampa in one side of family and 5 generations Native Floridian from around Monticello on the other side. I’m going to help her plan a family reunion near Orlando to see Orange County history and not have folks running off to the kiddie amusement parks.

The next image is of Rhoda’s husband who’s training ng as a boxer includes the 5th Street Gym in Miami. How about that, Tom Orr!
