What To Do On A Rainy Day!

Portraits by Lee
My daughter Anisa took this picture of me doing a pencil portrait of Zoe the dog.
This is the drawing of the same dog, that I drew last year.
Last Saturday I did portraits and Silhouettes at the Alfred Festival in Alfred, Maine. It rained off and on all day, but not very hard. Not many people came by. But one couple that had had me do a pencil portrait of their dog from their phone last year at this festival, found me again this year and asked me to do the same! 
I did this caricature of a girl who's mom was one of the vendors in another tent.
The other day I had an urge to check out what Illustration Friday.com's latest drawing prompt was. I haven't submitted to Illustration Friday in a while. Once in a while I still like the challenge. The theme last week was "Treasure" So I conjured up this little drawing of what a child's version of Treasure might be. What I forgot was that the next day the theme was going to chance, so I never had a chance to post this one, Oh well! Here it is anyway!

My Latest Adventures in Caricaturing!




I had a great June  this year doing caricatures at a Bah Mitzvah in Mass., the Somersworth Children's Festival in Somersworth, NH, and The Strawberry Festival in South Berwick, Me, as well as a custom caricature executed in my studio in Eliot, Me. 

The two ladies above were in attendance at the Bar Mitzvah. It was a very wet day, but they had planned the event to be held under tents in the driveway. There wasn't enough room in the house for many guest. And they had me situated on the porch. Luckily the paper didn't get too soggy, and everyone had a good time watching me draw!
