Scout Patch Design

Here are a few patch designs, as well as a photo of the final patch, that I designed for the Topa Topa Lodge of the Order of the Aarow-Boy Scouts of America in Ventura, California back in 2004. I found the images while looking through old files today.

They were looking for something to speak of the heritage of Ventura, so I incorporated the California Condor, the Channel Islands, and the native Chumash Indians in a traditional fishing boat.

Surprisingly it won first place in patch design that year at the NOAC conclave and became a hot item for trading.

More Caricature!

Here are a few more sketches I did this morning during a little bit of down time. Some are of family, some are just random photos I found. Its amazing how many different variations can come from the same photo.

Trying to get back into my caricaturing. It has been too long. I feel a piece of me being restored. This is so natural for me do and endless entertainment for myself. These are some church notes from yesterday as well as sketches from a commissioned piece I am working on presently.
I spent last weekend at the UCLA Book Fair in LA manning our booth and doing caricatures of the attendees all weekend long - 450+ caricatures in 2 days. I enjoyed the laughs and smiles they got from the kids. I think I had more fun doing them than they had receiving them. What fun! More to come soon!
